The story of solutions

Once again the team behind the Story of Stuff, a ground breaking short film about our consumer culture, has launched an excellent new film looking at how we need to change our thinking about creating the solutions we want to see to move towards a more sustainable, equitable and natural way of living.

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.

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?
