Go Green Café from 4pm / Film from 6pm / Discussion 8-9pm


An exciting opportunity to see this hugely inspiring documentary-style film about the possibilities for a positive future for our culture and our planet and a chance to meet Transition Belper group leaders and fellow members of the community.

Already viewed by over 1.5 million people in France alone, and winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), Tomorrow has been hugely impactful. Produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Mélanie Laurent, it tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.

The Transition Network have secured it's community-led distribution across the UK, with Rob Hopkins, Transition's founder, featuring in the film. Here in Belper this plans to be a great community event with a Transition-run 'Go Green' Café from 4pm for a cuppa, a piece of cake and a chat, then the film will screen at 6pm. There will be an opportunity for discussion and idea-sharing afterwards with the chance to find out more about local community projects and how to get involved.

More about the film: Tomorrow 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 30 other countries, regularly receiving standing ovations, and leading to the formation of many new community projects.

It is the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency and it also has a great soundtrack!
