Tomorrow The Film!

On 18 January 2018, 41 people came along to The Old Dancer in Wilmslow for food, drink and a showing of the inspirational film Tomorrow, featuring the Transition Network’s very own Rob Hopkins.

The film follows the filmmakers Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent, together with a team of four people, on a journey through ten different countries to figure out what issues may lead to global environmental disaster and what we can do to avoid it. During their journey, they meet those who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education and began to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world…

We filmed some of the reactions to the film: here. We also asked people to think about what they might do differently as a result of seeing the film, and they made these pledges:

Use small local traders more often

Buy less plastic packaging

If we can have a local currency (Wilmslow Pound) I will support it and use it wherever possible

Find out about our nearest junk Food Cafes

Buy more locally  Grow stuff in my garden (try to!)

Suggest to Heatons Sustainability Group that they organise a showing of this film

Think small scale local and don’t dismiss my own efforts

Create and work a vegetable patch in my own garden thinking of biodiversity and using eco friendly products

I will pass on the need for action now to my children to give them a better future and to ask them to do the same

Make a veggie garden at my school

Intercrop the veg in my garden       Cycle Plan for Wilmslow

Support development of a local currency  Be more community aware

Take an active role in a community project
