TAUNTON QUAKER MEETING HOUSE
13 Bath Place, Taunton TA1 4EP
“Tomorrow” (known as “Demain” in France) tells the story of its co-producers, Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurant and their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces. It has been watched by over 1.5 million people, won Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), been shown to communities, schools, at the United Nations, the European Parliament, in board rooms and local governments.
It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education. It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, ambitious recycling projects. It has been a huge boost to community-led projects, and is currently on release in 29 other countries, leading to the formation of many new community projects. It is the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency.
Tea will be available before the film, and there will be a short debate after the film, which lasts about 2 hours.
There will be an entry fee of £3 to cover costs.
Event arranged by Taunton Transition Town
