WHAT IS PROSPERITY
If you’re tired of hearing about all that’s wrong with the world and would rather get up and do something about it, then you’re in the right place. Doom and gloom can only go so far before we’re depressed and stunned into inaction…all while the world continues to slide.
ABOUT THE FILM
Prosperity is following a new generation of companies that are doing the right thing and deserve our attention (and money). There’s an emerging movement of “For Benefit” companies that are building into their bylaws the new ethics of conscious companies.
In the old days, a CEO could be sued by the board if he/she didn’t maximize profits at any cost. Now, companies can elect to be “For Benefit” and factor in doing the right thing over just profits alone.
THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY AND IS CHANGING THE GAME.
This feature-length movie is following the key players in this movement and is showing a real positive way out of the mess we’ve inherited and helped co-create. The more we support this blossoming movement, the more money goes to people who care…people who will take a stand for our values and our environment.
From CEOs of major public companies, to urban farmers, and remote tribes, PROSPERITY covers the whole story in a powerful narrative.
