Geneva Forum on Social Change

The GFSC is happening again this year, with Grassroots Innovation: Growing Business for Social Change as the focus this year. Check out the program here. They're showing five documentaries, I'll go see 3 and 5:

  • To catch a dollar, about Mohamad Yunus;
  • Food, Inc., about the US food industry;
  • Garbage Dreams, about three teenage boys growing up in the world’s largest garbage village on the outskirts of Cairo, home to 60,000 ‘Zaballeen’, or ‘garbage people;
  • Buyer be Fair, about fair trade coffee;
  • a small act, about a poor Kenyan kid who made it to Harvard but decided to become a UN lawyer...preview below:
