Quick summary: 2040 is an innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW! Director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Find out how to screen the film here.
This unit has been designed to allow your students to explore climate change and its causes by looking at a range of real-world solutions such as making transport more sustainable, improving food security, and implementing alternative energy sources!
The film will demonstrate to your students that we already have the solutions to climate change; we just need to take action to bring them rapidly into the mainstream. The 2040 documentary and geography curriculum package will support your students in turning this knowledge into positive action for a better future. 2040 will only be available in cinemas for the first part of 2019 and you can make a group booking for your class at your local cinema during the film’s theatrical release which starts on May 23. These lessons have been designed with a media library to support teachers. The film will be available on video-on-demand and DVD later in 2019.
2040 is proudly distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Madman Entertainment.
