2040: Educational resources

Contains 2 items

Created by

The 2040 journey began with award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film). Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators leading the way to a better future. In 2040, Damon speaks to change-makers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability.

2040 is 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’, that will give your students hope for the future.
