Event description
A free moving screening of 2040 in celebration of National Recycling Week!

About this Event

Come and join your neighbours and the Georges River community for a FREE screening of 2040. The screening will be followed by an interactive panel session, discussing the screening and actions we can all take to improve our planet and environment.

2040 is a feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important now!

Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on journey to explore what the future could 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. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

  • "Entertaining & uplifting" - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "A compelling vision ... let yourself be inspired" - Christiana Figueres, Lead Negotiator, Paris Climate Agreement

As part of the 2040 screening experience, Georges River Council will host a Q&A session after the film with individuals undertaking innovative and notable sustainability works, now! Community members and participants at the screening can hear more about initiatives being delivered now to improve our future planet and have the opportunity to ask environmental/sustainability questions to our panel.

The panel session will include Monica Richter, from the World Wildlife Fund, Natalie Isaacs, from 1 Million Women and Rickie-Lee McLaurin-Smith, from Keeping Randwick's Trees and UNSW. The panelists have extensive experience in developing and delivering environmentally sustainable initiatives. The panel will be available after the screening to further discuss changes we can all make (no matter how small or BIG!) as well as answer your environmental sustainability questions!
