About 2040


2040 is a hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW!

The 2040 journey began with award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film). Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.

This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.

the Regeneration

The Regeneration is a global movement of people who are mobilised to learn about, contribute to, advocate for and invest in regenerative solutions that improve the wellbeing of the planet, all people and all living systems.

In order for us to realise this 2040, we have created a participatory action hub where you can create a personalised action plan and connect with our network of organisations who are all doing their part to combat climate change. With your help, we can all be part of telling a new story for our planet by bringing regenerative solutions into the mainstream.

Join The Regeneration movement and see how you can start making an impact today.

Carbon Management Partners

Thank you to our carbon management partners.


Carbon Management

To assess and mitigate our carbon footprint, we tracked our emissions and offset them with triple gold certified carbon credits. We also went a step further by planting a small native forest that could sequester up to 90 tonnes of carbon by 2040. We believe effectively tackling climate change requires systemic changes, but in the interim, carbon offsetting can help fund renewable energy and conservation projects that reduce future dependence on fossil fuels and sequester carbon into the soil.
