Thank goodness for youth and student activists. I had the pleasure of enjoying this week, the UFV Film Festival sponsored by the International Development Club and the Students for Sustainability Club.


Here was their movie line up:


The Story of Stuff

The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

Flow – the story of the tensions around water rights


These were a powerful trio, that when viewed through the lenses of Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive, reveal why we need to pay attention to their messages. I’ve written up my impressions of each movie under separate posts.


Taken together, Flow, The Story of Stuff and Cuba: The Power of Community remind us of the necessities of life, the power of human intervention and the integration of human systems. They also remind me of the resilient character of the human species and re-affirm that we have the intelligence to adapt and evolve. When the life conditions demand it, we can change fast. And maybe we should demand the changes before life conditions give us no choice?
