The next instalment is the movie “Tomorrow” (French: Demain/ Chinese: “自己地球自己救”). Visit us on facebook here.


In English, French and English subtitles

Tomorrow provides a comprehensive look at ways in which activists, organizers and everyday citizens are trying to make the world a better, greener, more sustainable place. This film documents how today’s actions contribute to the change of our tomorrow world. Ecological rights advocate, Cyril Dion and actress-filmmaker Melanie Laurent, together with a team of four, travel to ten countries to investigate how the problems evolved and how to avoid them.
During their journey, they met the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education and begin to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world…

The film is organized into five topics: 1) Agriculture 2) Energy 3) Economy 4) Democracy 5) Education. It provides a comprehensive look at how people from all walks of life including farmers, teachers, researchers, and citizens can contribute to the solution in creating a greener and more sustainable planet with limited but significant effort. This is a mind provoking documentary inspiring us to become responsible citizens and work to save our planet.

We will be joined by Benita Chick from Earthwatch after the film screening, at 21h30. Benita will share with us some details on Earthwatch’s action in Hong Kon…g and their Freshwater Watch program which illustrate the purpose of “Tomorrow”: how we can all get involved in local issues at any level and how communities can take matters into their own hands, rather than relying on governments or corporations to take action.
