2040 is an Australian documentary that takes a solutions-based approach to how we can, using the technology we already have, mitigate the enormous global issues we currently face. The main themes/solutions looked at in the film are around: empowerment of women and girls; marine regeneration; regenerative agriculture; renewable energy; and circular economy. It's a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action - you can take a peek at some of the amazing things the Australian release has achieved so far in this video.
Excitingly, we have just booked in another run of screenings on Sunday the 19th of Januarynationwide. We think that you'd be specifically interested in a screening at Odeon Milton Keynes at 15:00 on Sun 19th January. That's:
Venue: Odeon Milton Keynes
Date: Sun 19th January
Now is your chance to see this award-winning documentary on the big screen!
