2040 Film Screening for Schools and Educators

Special 2040 Screening Event for Schools & Educators

Thursday 27 February 2020, 6PM – 9PM

UNE Centre, Fitzroy St, Tamworth

Sustainable North West wishes to invite local educators from the Tamworth school community to join us in early 2020 for a film screening of the recently released, inspiring documentary ‘2040’ created by award-winning Australian director, Damon Gameau.

2040 explores what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our environment and has reached people across the world, creating momentum and hope for our global future.

Engaging children in learning about environmental solutions and empowering them to take action in their own households and school communities will have broad scale benefits to our whole community.

Our local screening will be followed by interactive conversation and networking with light refreshments being served. Participants will be invited to opt in for a copy of the 2040 film to be donated by our group to your school as an ongoing educational resource.

2040 provides an opportunity for conversations in our local community, particularly with children and adolescents about how to create a better future for all. By offering you this opportunity, we hope to raise awareness of the films objectives and the classroom and social media resources that support positive action.

Please join us for a great evening! RSVP to penne@trla.org.au by Tuesday 25th February.
