To celebrate the upcoming international release of he new award-winning documentary Voices of Transition and through the generosity of our friends over at Milpa Films in Germany, we’re able to offer two Transition Voice readers the chance to win a DVD of this inspiring and entertaining film.
Global environmental trends — climate change, peak oil and food insecurity — are forcing us to confront the inherent contradictions of our industrial agricultural system.
Voices of Transition presents paths towards a new model of human existence: one that is fair, environmentally sound and fulfilling, with soil and people supporting each other within a balanced and sustainable system.
Powered by the conviction that these crisis can be a major catalyst for positive change, this inspiring documentary casts a spotlight on a new global movement. In Voices of Transition we meet scientists, agronomists, permaculture designers and pioneers of the Transition movement. These voices take us on a cinematic tour of France, England and Cuba — to communities already making the transition to local resilience.
Voices of Transition is an independent, participatory documentary film project with the ambitious goal of inspiring each and every one of its viewers to join a worldwide social and environmental movement. It is an “action film” in the truest sense of the word: instead of sitting back and passively watching, viewers are encouraged to get up, join in and contribute to the transformation of our society.
A video for your thoughts
So here’s the deal. Readers of Transition Voice can win one of two copies of the DVD by answering, in 100 words or less, this question:
What does the transition to a fairer, post-oil economy look like for you?
The more original the better. Don’t be afraid to be personal. Or to be funny.
Just leave your thoughts on this question in the comment area under this article. Please don’t email us your comments! We’ll only read the ones in the public comment area. We want everyone to be able to see what you write.
The deadline is this coming Monday, August 25 at 5pm U.S. Eastern Time. We look forward to hearing from you.
Meanwhile, watch the trailer.
