TerraLogos: eco architecture is pleased to welcome Julie Gabrielli, to introduce her innovative short film: I want America to Thrive.
Tuesday July 24, 2012
TL offices: 2901 E. Baltimore Street
Baltimore, MD 21224
"I Want America to Thrive" showcases people who have the creativity, grit, and vision to create a better world every day through their work. These folks don't waste precious time blaming others for the state of things. They see a bright future and every day they take steps towards it. Their work encourages us to avert our eyes from the doom and gloom and turn our attention towards the future we want.
In order to thrive, we need three positive messages for every one negative. Since most news outlets live on the negative end of the spectrum, we need to turn up the volume on good news!
The film is in the pre-production and funding phase. Find out how you can get involved and support the project at: http://www.indiegogo.com/america-thrives. The crowd funding campaign ends on July 10.
At this gathering, we'll see a few video sketches, hear an update on the project and discuss the strategy of positive visioning as a way to accelerate the global shift to sustainability – and ultimately, thrivability.
