11.45 LOCAL FOOD FROM A KIDS PERSPECTIVE  (7 minutes)
11-year-old Birke Baehr presents his take on a major source of our food — far-away and less-than-picturesque industrial farms. Keeping farms out of sight promotes a rosy, unreal picture of big-box agriculture, he argues, as he outlines the case to green and localize food production.

12.00  GENETIC ROULETTE  (17 minutes)
From the award winning full documentary, this must see video shows new evidence that points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates, especially among children.  Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and maize. Not only is maize the staple food in our country but many processed foods have these ingredients. If you have any doubts about the dangers of GM, do watch this movie.

12.30  INCREDIBLE EDIBLE  (14 minutes)
With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens. Pam Warhurst cofounded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community.

12.45   ENOUGHNESS – RESTORING BALANCE TO THE ECONOMY  (6 minutes)
How we see the world determines how we act. Western thought sees us at war with each other over resources. In Indigenous philosophy, we are all related as individuals in balance with nature. Enoughness juxtaposes these two world views and delivers some startling facts. Well illustrated throughout, this short film is a powerful testament to living in harmony rather than in competition with each other and the earth.

1.00  EKAHYA – AN AFFORDABLE INFORMAL HOUSING SOLUTION  (17 minutes)
Local Hout Bay resident and founder of Envirochild, Johnny Anderton was invited to speak at TEDx Cape Town on his work to develop and disseminate simple, cost-effective ideas to improve the lives of those living in informal settlements. Watch how he has developed and installed his amazing E-khaya.

1.30  WHAT THE ECONOMIC SITUATION MEANS AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT  (14 minutes)
This video aims to broaden understanding of the debt crisis and peak resources and encourage action for the sake of personal preparedness, happiness and ethical living. This animation sums up the key challenges facing our global society of credit crisis and resource scarcity and describes a path we can take to a happier life, now and in the future -Resilient, interdependent communities living in the real economy. It’s well worth watching 

2.00  WHY PLASTIC BAGS MUST BE BANNED (10 minutes)
Haylee McLellan will show a few short  videos highlighting the profoundly destructive effect that plastic bags and other throw away plastic items are having on wildlife. Bring the kids.  They’re easy to watch with a good message

2.15  THE DANGERS OF CELL PHONE AND WIFI RADIATION (10 minutes)
This is  short video report that everyone who uses cell phones ad wifi should watch. Especially if your children are exposed.

2.30  THE TEN MOST POWERFUL MINUTES YOU WILL EVER SEE  (10 minutes)
Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, The brilliant, thought provoking intro to the earth-shattering film, Earthlings.  Must see.

3.00 THE STORY OF SOLUTIONS  (10 minutes)
The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal.  In the current ‘Game of More’, we’re told to cheer a growing economy — more roads, more malls, more Stuff! — even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing . But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn’t more, but better — better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn’t that be what winning means?

3.45:  COMMON LAW – COMMUNITIES MOVING TOWARDS SELF GOVERNANCE ( Discusion – 45 minutes)
Common law : “do no harm, cause no loss and do not impede the freedom of others. Reclaim your rights, take full responsibility and be guided by transparency.”  There is a growing movement looking at how the current economic and financial systems are bringing about social and environmental destruction,   and bringing to light the deceptive practices that keep us enslaved. This will be an open discussion led by Jan Lohfeldt and  Justin Maxwell, on why we should, and how we can,  take back our sovereignty and move towards more effective, and fair self governance and more independent economic systems. 

 4.45  DISCUSSION – CREATING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES (Discussion – 30 minutes)
Why are so many people today turning to live in communities? What can this lifestyle offer to a city person? - exploring ways for civilisation to blossom and showing the best of the Global Eco-village Network. Led by Daria Oriene – Eco -Soul Project, Hi-tech Eco-architecture
