CALENDAR: Salem Progressive Film Series, "The Nature of Cities"

The Nature of Cities
Thursday, March 10, 2011
7 p.m.

The Nature of Cities is about the projects and people in cities across the world who believe that, even if we become more urbanized, we must reclaim an essential piece of our humanness-our connection to the world around us. The goal of this documentary is to raise the consciousness about and understanding of this movement as we explore the need of moving not only to sustainability but to a regenerative way of living.

The Nature of Cities explores both the nature in our own backyards and the possibilities in cities of the future.
