2040: Film screening and panel discussion

2040 documentary

Drawing on experts from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 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, award-winning director 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 societies.

2040 is an entry point into a much larger world of climate solutions that are already within our reach. From seaweed farming to community renewable energy projects, people are taking matters into their own hands and creating innovative solutions to climate change.

This 90 minute film will be followed by panel discussion and a Q&A session discussing grass roots, bottom-up initiatives tackling climate change in Australia. Panellists will include:

  • Prof Kate Auty, ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment
  • Lawrence McIntosh, Principal Executive Officer, SolarShare Canberra

Please only register if you genuinely intend to come to this event. If you find out later that you're unable to attend, please log in and cancel your tickets or you can email us at climate@anu.edu.au.

If you're unable to attend on Wed 24 July, ANU Film Group will also be showing this film (without the panel discussion) on Sat 27 July at 5pm. You can sign up as an ANU Film Group member and see more details here.
