In Fixing the Future, David Brancaccio, of public radio’s Marketplace and NOW on PBS, visits people and organizations across America that are attempting a revolution: the reinvention of the American economy. The film highlights effective, local practices such as local business alliances, community banking, time banking/hour exchange, worker cooperatives and local currencies.
The film will be followed by a short reflection, and representatives from the Chicago Time Exchange, Mutual Aid Network and Eco-Andersonville will share information on ways you can get involved in alternative economies in Chicago. This event will mark the first ‘hub’ activity for the Chicago Sustainability Leaders Network🙂
