2040 is a visionary film by the award winning Australian director Damon Gameau which offers new hope to the climate crisis conversation.
 
Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers to discover what the future of the planet could look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us, and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.
 
Guided by the voices of 100 child interviewees aged between 6 and 11 who describe the kind of world they would like to see by the year 2040, Damon draws on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, education, agriculture and sustainability to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.
 
Aimed at a broad audience including children and their families, Gameau blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to show how these solutions – including seaweed farming, empowering girls and women with education, automated vehicles and decentralised, renewable energy systems – could regenerate the world for future generations.
