2040 : Green Initiatives 134th Film Screening

  • 18:30 - 21:30
  • EF | Education First, Shanghai

Join Green Initiatives' 134th film screening, “2040” a film of hope and optimism that offers a much-needed mindset refresh on how to address climate change.  The film is a breath of positive air amid a world obsessed with news of wildfires, droughts, floods, and climate change. It is important to understand that staying hopeful and motivated is the first step in our search for solutions to combat climate change.



Concerned about his young daughter's future, filmmaker and award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) travels the world in search of new approaches and solutions to climate change. He meets with innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education, and sustainability.

Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralized renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.

This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.
