"Outgrow the System" is a thought-provoking documentary that explores alternative economic models aimed at transitioning towards a sustainable and just economic system. The film screening and panel discussion event in Washington, D.C. on May 6, 2024, organized by the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Extinction Rebellion Washington, D.C., promises to shed light on fresh thinking and strategies for safeguarding our planet's limited resources and ensuring the survival of humans and other species. The one-hour documentary, crafted by a Swedish collective of filmmakers, delves into economic perspectives that challenge the current system, which is widely perceived as putting humanity on the brink of ecological breakdown. The event aims to explore these transformative ideas and celebrate the abundance of creativity and ideas that exist worldwide, urging them to collide and converge. The program commences at 6:00 pm with doors opening and vegetarian snacks provided. From 6:30 to 7:30 pm, the film screening will take place, followed by a short talk on the role of activism for economic systems change from 7:30 to 7:45 pm. The event concludes with a connecting and reflection session with fellow guests from 7:45 to 8:30 pm, fostering dialogue and exchange on the critical issue of transitioning to a sustainable economic system. This event promises to be an insightful and thought-provoking exploration of alternative economic models, bringing together activists, thinkers, and concerned citizens to envision a world where social movements can rally behind positive visions instead of merely opposing dystopias.
