Since its release in January 2011, the film “The Economics of Happiness” by localisation pioneer Helena Norberg-Hodge, has been screened on five continents, won numerous awards and inspired communities and people who want local prosperity, wellbeing and sustainability.

The Beechmont Business & Enterprise Network (BBEN) is thrilled to announce that in collaboration with bioregional solar energy company Nickel Energy, they will be screening “The Economics of Happiness” on Friday October 28 at 6pm at Binna Burra Lodge Library, as part of the next BBEN Networking event.

"While some American reviewers have predicted an Oscar for Best Documentary, others have said that this film will do for localisation/globalisation schism what An Inconvenient Truth did for our understanding of climate change."Roger Hanney, writer for The Alternative Media Group of Australia

"A must-see film for the future of the planet."Zac Goldsmith, Member of UK Parliament

  • Date: Friday October 28
  • Time: 5.30pm for 6pm sharp start
  • Venue: Binna Burra Lodge Library (above the dining room)
  • “The Economics of Happiness” will screen first followed by a discussion and information about Nickel Energy’s household solar program. Informal networking will round off the evening.
  • $12 per person covers finger food from Binna Burra Lodge. Pay at the Lodge reception on arrival.

Nickel Energy is sponsoring the screening of the film to help cover costs for the not for profit filmmakers. Gold coin donations on the night will also go to the filmmakers.

In 2009, Nickel Energy collaborated with BBEN and the Beechmont community to undertake a bulk buy household solar program. The program was a huge success with some 20-25 local households installing solar panels on their roofs. Nickel Energy had a stall at Zest Fest and loved reconnecting with many of its householders and is pleased to sponsor this important film screening for the Beechmont community:
