Come join the Donella Meadows Institute and Vermont Law School for a free screening of the film Last Call, a new documentary that tells the story of the groundbreaking 1972 Limits to Growth study. With a wealth of high-quality historic footage and extensive interviews with the core Limits to Growth team, Last Call explores the thinking leading up to the study, the storm of controversy it sparked upon its publication, and the ways the sustainability narrative has changed over the past four decades. At its core, it is a revealing look at the complexities and roadblocks involved in creating a paradigm shift–even one grounded in good data.
Following the screening, Marta Ceroni of the Donella Meadows Institute will lead a discussion about issues raised in the film, including the meaning of sustainability today and approaches for creating change in today’s world.
