Join us for a docu-series on the themes of Transition Days 2024

Between February and May 2024, a screening of one film for each theme of the Transition Days Festival will be held throughout Luxembourg. Each theme will be represented by a short documentary presenting solutions around Food sovereignty, Respect of Living Systems, Economic transition, Democratic transition, Territories in transition, Energy Transition and Societal transition.

Each film will be followed by a workshop for reflection and debate with the attendees, as well as a graphic recording of the session. We will discuss a variety of questions related to the film, mainly how we can act and bring about change at our level in Luxembourg.

Transition of Territories

CELL and LUCA warmly welcome you for an evening of exploration and co-creation. Our evening will start with a screening of Seeds of Resilience a short film that follows the inspiring story of La Garrotxa, a region in northern Catalonia, Spain that has harnessed hope through collective intelligence of their community, pioneering the co-production of a plan for regional resilience, which they are now implementing. 

Following an oral and audiovisual telling of this incredible story, the regenerative strategists involved in the project will facilitate an interactive workshop, in which we invite you to dive deep into the framework and methodologies that helped spark and sustain regional resilience and regeneration. What lessons from the story in Catalan can we learn for us here in Luxembourg? Come and immerse yourself in a story of a resilience and regeneration.

Food Systems Transition and Respect of Living Systems

Summer 2023. 2 young filmmakers travelled through Europe visiting seed producers at their workplaces and experiencing first-hand how important it is to preserve this diversity in Europe. The short documentary gives a voice to these small-scale seed producers and seed savers from across Europe, with beautiful footage shot in Ireland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic.

For diversity on our plates and in nature, we also need diversity in seeds. However, when we look at the selection available in supermarkets, including in the vegetable aisle, it quickly becomes clear that everything looks the same, almost all the time and all year round. Why is that? Because large corporations have power over the market. Now, however, EU seed legislation is being reformed – a chance to save seed diversity.

Economic Transition

“Change the system, not the climate” is a common demand in the climate movement. But what kind of system do we actually want? In the midst of humanity’s worst crisis, the pioneers stand ready. Meet the new economic perspectives that have the potential to change the world at its core. The orginal meaning of the word ”economy” is “household management”. The economy of today however, is not householding, but rather consuming our finite natural resources at an alarming pace. “Outgrow the System” explores how we can return to the essence of the term and design an economic system that genuinely manages our scarce resources.s
