This learning event is right for you if you are an educator, parent or both who wants to know how they can act now so that the future for young people is positive and hopeful


In '2040', award winning film maker Damon Gameau examines what the future could look like if we were to take action now. His positive and passionate vision is based on the work of global thought leaders, innovators and educators. Following a screening of the film there will be a Q and A session with a member of the 2040 team and opportunity for small group discussion. In a fast changing world, where we are often presented with a bleak view of the future, this is a chance to be part of a positive conversation for change.

In CSIRO's Australian National Outlook 2019 report

The new Australia National Outlook 2019 report looks out to 2060. It signals Australia faces a Slow Decline if it takes no action on the most significant economic, social and environmental challenges. But, if these challenges are tackled head on, Australia can look forward to a positive Outlook Vision. This could mean higher GDP per capita, ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, strong economic growth and energy affordability, and more liveable major cities.

Key takeaways                

  • an inspirational film viewing
  • Q and A with a 2040 film team member
  • discussion of ideas from the film
  • 2040 curriculum package for teachers with lesson plans and activities
