Green Drinks KL May: Film Screening: GrowthBusters

Green Drinks is a monthly gathering for anyone interested in creating a more sustainable world, exchanging ideas and hearing different perspectives about the social and environmental challenges we face.

These events are very simple and unstructured, there’s no agenda or other formality… anything goes. The whole point is to have some good conversations in a casual and informal setting. It’s a great way to socialise, catch up with like-minded friends, meet new ones, and connect with others who are passionate or curious about the environment, climate and all things ‘green’.

Premiere Screening in Malaysia: GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth

Everything we thought we knew is wrong!

Okay, maybe not everything. But what if some of our core beliefs about how the world works turn out to be myths? This documentary flips our world upside down to see what makes it tick, as it explores the most critical question of our time: How do we become a sustainable civilization?

This film examines the cultural barriers that prevent us from reacting rationally to the evidence current levels of population and consumption are unsustainable.

It asks why the population conversations are so difficult to have. Why it’s more important to our society to have economic growth than clean air. Why communities seek and subsidize growth even when it destroys quality of life and increases taxes.​

From Las Vegas to Atlanta, Mexico City to Mumbai, the White House to the Vatican, GrowthBusters takes us on a whirlwind tour of our obsession with urban and economic growth… and examines our survival skills.

This documentary holds up a mirror to the beliefs and behaviors we must leave behind – and the values we need to embrace – so our children can survive and thrive.
