Playing nice with our planet
Climate is and will remain a hot political potato (assuming the potato crops will survive), this topic has received much attention over recent weeks as pressure mounts for our government to take action.

We can't ignore the fact that climate change is a key contributing factor to the most pressing social issues our world faces. We're constantly told the solutions are complex, which leads to us being inactive or paralysed because it becomes too overwhelming and alarming to think about.

But here's the thing. It's not complex. In fact (truly, a fact), the solution is quite simple and we have everything we need NOW to tackle climate change and protect the earth's future.

Q&A with Award-winning director Damon Gameau at preview of the film 2040
This is beautifully explained in 2040, a stunning and visionary documentary that reaches into the future and shows us how our world could look in 2040 but only if we act now.

2040 is the creation of Award-winning director Damon Gameau (of That Sugar Film fame) who takes us on a journey to unearth the facts and to show us how we, individually and collectively, can achieve short and long-term impact and improve our planet by embracing solutions already available to us.

2040 explains in a clear and concise way climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, and demonstrates how small and simple changes can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.

You'll come away from 2040 feeling uplifted, full of hope and with a sense of purpose, inspired to be a changemaker, knowing what the world "could be" by making a few changes to the way we live, starting today.

This is a documentary for all ages and is one that you'll be talking about, sharing and championing long after the credits stop rolling.
