10 x 2040 Double passes to be won
Time is running out
As the Ross Ice Shelf - the largest ice shelf in the world - melts ten times faster than predicted, the degree of the climate crisis we are facing becomes ever more apparent.
We are already seeing the consequences of 1°C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes. Research tells us we have 12 years to limit the impact of climate change to 1.5 degrees Celsius. For every day people, the enormity of the challenge ahead of us can be overwhelming.
“What can I do?” we ask ourselves. The scope of the change needed seems impossible to conceptualise.
Imagining a better future
These were the exact sentiments of documentary film maker Damon Gameau when he set out on his mission to find the best solutions to the problems we are facing and imagine a better future.
And in his new film 2040, he has not only found the solutions, he’s also conceptualised the outcomes for the world as though we put them into place now. The end result is a cleaner, greener, socially inclusive, healthier planet!
In 2040, Damon Gameau (who also produced That Sugar Film) embarks upon 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 to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.
Structured as a visual letter to his four-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on the changes that could be made if we implement the newest science and technology in energy, transport, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.
Making it happen
“What a fabulous documentary. It's so inspiring and the possibilities are real and wonderful,” said CEO Enova Energy Felicity Stening. “The film re-imagines the earth's and humanity's future if we could implement solutions with technology that is available to us right now. Enova was founded on that same premise – doing things differently in order to create positive change.”
Enova is already working on bringing microgrids alive and into communities in Australia with its first local project in the works and intentions to make microgrids real and available to Australian communities. The technology is here now and we all need to participate to make it happen.
