Relocalisation as an antidote to climate change and dwindling oil and gas supplies The Turning Point: a return to community explores the vital importance of community in the 21st century and its role in helping us to create a life-sustaining society. The film takes an inspiring look at some of the sustainable community solutions that have grown up over the last 20 years around the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland. This multi-faith spiritual community, ecovillage and international centre for holistic education aspires to foster a new human consciousness and to create a positive and sustainable future.
This film will be of particular interest to anyone involved in the Transition Town Movement or similar initiatives.
