Reel to Real X D&G Climate Hub: Outgrow the System

April 5 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Guest Hosted by Katie Percival & Julie Douglas from Climate Kitchen.

Outgrow the System | Cecilia Paulsson & Anders Nilsson | 58 mins

This month, with support from GSA Biosphere we are holding a screening of Outgrow the System a documentary film exploring new economic ideas and practices for a more sustainable global future. “Change is not only possible, but already underway.” We will be joined by guest hosts from Dumfries Climate Kitchen to host a post-film discussion with the film’s co-director Anders Nilsson.

Supported by D&G Climate Hub.

About the Film


“Change the system, not the climate” is a common demand in the climate movement. But whatkind of system do we actually want? In the midst of humanity’s worst crisis, the pioneers stand ready. Meet the new economic perspectives that have the potential to change the world at its core.

The original meaning of the word ”economy” is “household management”. The economy of today however, is not house holding, but rather consuming our finite natural resources at an alarming pace. “Outgrow the System” explores how we can return to the essence of the term and design an economic system that genuinely manages our scarce resources.
