2040 film screening at the Bowery Theatre – an event not to be missed

Summary

On 12 September Brimbank Council’s Bowery Theatre is presenting a special screening of the popular film 2040, which shows us how solutions to global warming could improve the planet for future generations.

The film by award-winning director Damon Gameau (creator of That Sugar Film), explores what the future could look like in the year 2040.

Motivated by his four-year-old daughter and concern for the planet, the filmmaker travels the world in search of new approaches and solutions to global warming.

The film embraces the best solutions already available to us and shows how these solutions could improve the planet.

The 90-minute film is followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session facilitated by the Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Lucinda Congreve. Panellists include sustainability leaders Steven Scalise, Mittul Vahanvati, Bridget Tehan and Julia Collin.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Lucinda Congreve invited community members to come along to a special one-off screening of the 2040 film and participate in a panel discussion, all at no charge.

“Following the screening, join me and local experts as we discuss grassroots initiatives and tackling climate change in Brimbank.

“This is an opportunity not to be missed, and a great way to raise awareness around the impacts of climate change on the environment.

“The film is an entertaining and uplifting view of how we can respond to climate change and improve the health of our planet.

“It’s very timely, as protecting the environment is a subject of increasing interest and one that our community cares about strongly.

“Taking action on climate change is important as we encourage everyone to address sustainability issues and help build a cleaner, greener Brimbank,” Cr Congreve said.
