Beyond Net Film Screening - RSA

Beyond Zero Film Screening

At the House

 -  | GMT Standard Time

The Steps / The Coffee House

We'll be hosting a screening of  the short film Beyond Net live from our Steps, situated within our Coffee House. Snacks and beverages will be available to purchase on the day. 

Beyond Zero doesn’t fit in the usual documentary marketplace. Capitalism is often perceived as the problem - accelerating climate change, income inequalities, injustices and more. And, that’s true. But documentaries tend to focus on the problems and not the solutions. What if capitalism reimagined could also be the solution? If we were to align profit with people and the planet, could we unleash a force to positive change at scale? You can find out more details on the film here.

Watch the trailer here.

Beyond Zero is a fascinating story, not only about inspirational and visionary founder Ray Anderson, but the struggles and determination of a company trying to become a positive force in the world. The film delivers a message that needs to be told: In the end it indeed boils down to people, and business can be more successful and resilient, simply by doing the right thing.” Paul Polman - Former CEO of Unilever and member of the board, United Nations Global Compact. 

We'll be joined by Chidi Obihara who will be able to answer any questions on themes of sustainable business raised in the film.
