Free Film - The Wisdom to Survive Climate Change, Capitalism and Community - This film accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks—what is keeping us from action? In discussions with thought leaders and activists, we explore how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of the society, and the lives of billions of people. Hanover Pub function room, Queens Pk Rd - 8pm, Wednesday 15th April. All welcome.

Upstairs at Hanover Community Centre, Southover St - 7:30pm Friday 24 April. ALL welcome.
What we do... We promote sustainable living locally by putting on fun and educational community events and activities. We bring people together in the community, and enable practical steps towards more sustainable living. We have interesting groups, always welcome new members to join in, or support them in taking their ideas forward.
The story of how we began...
A small group of friends put on a film showing of the Age of Stupid at the Hanover Community Centre in the cold cold winter of 2009. After the showing there was such an urgent feeling that we needed to ‘do something’ about the issues that the world was facing over climate change. With this momentum pushing us forward we decided to meet up again and start doing something together as a community - HASL was formed. Over the last 5 years our breadth of community action continues to grow!
