Event description
At 5pm on Saturday, 29th January, Blackwood Uniting Church is offering a free public screening of the climate action movie "2040".

About this event

The movie kicks off around 5.15pm and runs for about 90 minutes, after which there will be a facilitated discussion about how we can, as individuals and as a community, start making changes now that will positively impact the climate change that is confronting our world.

“2040 is a wonderfully uplifting and positive movie,” says Peter Cranwell of Blackwood Uniting Church. “It is a film that focusses on practical steps that are being taken right now, by individuals and communities around the world, and which are making an amazing difference. Rather than merely despairing about what we humans have done to the planet, this film encourages real and positive climate action now that can help bring about a better future for our grandchildren.”

In 2040, award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us right now. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

Members of the public are welcome to attend this free event, which will be the first in a series of environmentally focussed events being run by Blackwood Uniting Church in 2022. “This is absolutely not a ‘churchy’ event,” says Peter, “but rather an event that seeks to encourage our wider community to work together in ways that can bring about positive change.”
