It is commonly accepted in environmental activism circles that consumerism in America and other parts of the world has been one key drivers of global climate change. A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity
is a fascinating documentary from Happen Films that focuses on the intentional community of Wurruk’an in Gippsland Australia, where a group of (mostly) millennials engaged in a challenging but enlightening year-long experiment in simple living, organic farming, energy descent and tiny houses as meaningful corrective measures in addressing modern day environmental, economic and social crises.
