The 'Transition Town Shaftesbury Mulling Group' invite you to two free films:

The Power of Community
How Cuba Survived Peak Oil (no Cert)
Wednesday 30th April 2008
The Guildhall, Shaftesbury
Doors open at 7.00 pm
Start at 7.30 pm
Free Entry

AND

The End of Suburbia
Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream (Cert 13)
Tuesday 6th May 2008
Shaftesbury Primary School, Wincombe Lane
Doors open at 7.00 pm
Start at 7.30 pm
FREE ENTRY

Our economy and lifestyle are oil-dependent. Peak oil will soon make these unsustainable. Climate Change requires a post-carbon society. Find out how Cuba dealt creatively with its Peak Oil when the Soviet Union collapsed. See what rising energy costs might mean for our society.

The films will be followed by an OPEN DISCUSSION to explore what we can do in Shaftesbury to prepare for the twin challenges of Peak Oil and Climate Change.

See www.transitiontowns.org for more info

I hope you can come
Robin Walter
