"Fixing the Future" to be screened at the Mark Skinner Library
In "Fixing the Future," host 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. By featuring communities using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity, "Fixing the Future" inspires hope and renewal in a people overwhelmed by economic collapse.
The film highlights effective, local practices such as local business alliances, community banking, time banking/hour exchange, worker cooperatives and local currencies. It is hoped that there will be a meaningful discussion on how these topics can tie in with the recent visioning exercise in Manchester.

The suggested donation for the event is $5. Students will be admitted free of charge.
