Free Teaching Resources

We have partnered with the curriculum experts at Cool Australia to build a comprehensive package of units of work for upper primary and secondary.

These free lesson plans are learning recipes for teachers that utilise short clips from the film to support classroom learning, providing step-by-step instructions, student workshops and engaging content.

To access these lessons, simply sign up for a free account with Cool Australia and download the resources via the below button.

2040 Schools DVD

Schools in Australia and New Zealand can order the Schools Version of the 2040 DVD or Blu Ray! This version of the 2040 disc is for primary and secondary schools that wish to utilise the film as a learning tool or host on-site screenings for the school community (including fundraisers).

Once you’ve purchased your copy, we will send you a link to download our School Action Toolkit and add you to our schools mailing list (optional). If you haven’t purchased a DVD but would still like to receive a free copy of our School Action Toolkit, please email [email protected]

Sharing the film with your class digitally: 

Teachers in Australia and New Zealand can now also organise a virtual screening of the film for your class.

If you have already bought a DVD of the film and you have a ClickView account, you can email us for permission to upload the film to your account, to make it more easily accessible for your teachers and students.

"One of the most touching parts of the film was seeing Damon's hope towards the capability of my generation. This sort of inspiration is vital for the productivity and initiation of creativity for people my age."

ELENA STORRY — Grade 6 Student, United Kingdom

"2040 is an awesome film because it shows what could happen if we try to save the planet. I really liked connecting up all the houses with solar panels, we could even connect up the whole world and we could all have power."

ZALI — aged 8, Australia
