2040 Screening

Wednesday 6 November 19:15 | Grand Ballroom

2040 is a galvanising, entertaining and educational film that maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.

Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, Damon Gameau embarks on a global journey to meet the innovators and change makers pioneering the best solutions already available to us today to improve the health of our planet and our communities.

Damon draws on the best minds from around the world to focus on the interconnections between environmental and human health – including climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability; inspired by these discoveries, and guided by the many children he consults with along the way, Damon interweaves dramatic sequences and high-end visual effects to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.

2040 is a galvanising, entertaining and educational film full of hope about the possibility to make changes that will shift the course for humanity and the planet.
