This month's event is happening on January 27th, 2018 with a film screening of the documentary 'Demain'/'Tomorrow'. --> Get your tickets here.
To prepare for the event, I wanted to provide some insight into the film and the environmental state of tomorrow.
After the publication of a study which outlined the potential demise of the human race and a world where food, water, and oil would be scarce, the creators of 'Tomorrow' felt it was their responsibility to inform the world.
They knew they could not approach this harsh reality head on, as it would leave most people feeling entirely powerless and render the cause as hopeless. So they took on the environmental crisis in small increments, only to find that the answers were already there.
Tomorrow sets out to showcase alternative and creative ways to view agriculture, economics, energy and education. It offers constructive solutions that can be implemented on a local scale in order to make a difference on a global scale. In showing these small and easy changes that individuals are able to make, it can restore a sense of agency and contribute to a positive shift within society.
Tomorrow is the beginning of a movement seeking to encourage individuals and communities around the world to change the way they live for the sake of our planet.
What are you going to do today, for tomorrow?
This film will help to educate and inspire with ideas and systems that are already working around the world. It should be approached with optimism and the understanding that each person must be part of the change. Try looking for things that you can implement in your home, your office, and your community.
We will be having an open environmental discussion after the film and we would love to hear your thoughts on 'tomorrow' and what you want to do about it today.
