LIVING THE CHANGE


Urban Roots


 Living the Change is a feature-length documentary that explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way. 


PLUS  
We welcome Daniel of True North Tiny Homes to add a little excitement to this line up!
From 3pm to 6pm Daniel will have a tiny home open for tours in the south parking lot of Central Library! Stop by the home and find out why more people are turning towards smaller living spaces and how it helps our environment! After the film, we'll invite Daniel to talk more about his journey creating & selling this alternative way of living!
