Energy Alton, the Alton Society and Alton Local Food Initiative present a screening of the inspirational film “Tomorrow” at the Maltings Centre on Friday 22 March, 6.00 for 6.30 pm.

This is about your children’s future.  A Special Report from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change published in October 2018 states that we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030 to avoid more than 1.5 degrees of global warming, which will threaten food production, displace many people from flooding and drought and more.

This film shows how we can reduce global warming and live better.  Its a film about local solutions to global problems, visiting urban farming projects, local renewable energy projects, ambitious recycling projects and more.  Awarded the prize for best documentary in the French “Oscars”, the film has hugely boosted community-led initiatives around the world.

Food and drink available, and time to talk about the film afterwards.
