About the Film
Communities and Consequences II: Rebalancing NH’s Human Ecology” is a sequel project to 2008’s award-winning Communities and Consequences: The Unbalancing of New Hampshire’s Human Ecology. This timely new film, book, web, and community outreach project explores the economic and social realities of workforce shortages in our state – the nation’s second oldest state in terms of median age.
The population bulge known as the baby boom is reaching social security age and beyond. The impacts of the aging of such a large demographic cohort are seen nationwide. But New Hampshire and northern New England are suffering a far more severe demographic maelstrom. Here the rapidly rising number of seniors have been accompanied by shrinking numbers of younger adults and children—an unbalancing of the region’s human ecology.
“Communities & Consequences II” shares stories of how people are working together to find innovative ways to create vibrant and welcoming places for people of all ages and backgrounds, and ensure a thriving future for their communities and the state.
