Film Screening of GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth
What are the traffic issues in Northern Virginia and Why?
WHEN: Friday, July 10; 7:30–9:00 PM
WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax, Program Building, 2709 Hunter Mill Road, Oakton, VA
DETAILS: Join us for a screening of the GrowthBusters–and a discussion of NOVA traffic issues focusing on the I-66 widening project and what we as citizens can do to impact the transportation design so that it results in less impact on our environment. The film, which was released in 2011, describes an addiction of communities to unending, unsustainable growth that destroys quality of life and increases taxes. This documentary holds up a mirror, encouraging us to examine the beliefs and behaviors that we must leave behind–and the values we need to embrace–so that our children can survive and thrive. After the film, Douglas Stewart, Virginia Sierra Club Transportation Chair, will lead discussions on the film screening and on what you can do to lessen the impacts of growth and transportation before we end up paving over NOVA.
All are welcome. Free refreshments.
SPONSORS: Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions, Unity of Fairfax, and Sierra Club/Great Falls Group
