FUTURE COUNCIL
Produced by Tebbernekkel
in association with Regen Studios

‘School of Rock’ meets ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. Damon Gameau (2040, THAT SUGAR FILM) takes eight kids on the ultimate school excursion: a road trip across Europe to seek solutions to the climate crisis.

About the film

Millions of children around the world are frustrated by the dire lack of action to protect the planet and their future. Until now, their only avenue to express these concerns has been protesting on the streets. Director Damon Gameau (2040, THAT SUGAR FILM) invites eight children on an epic adventure across Europe in a school bus powered by biofuel. Their mission is to better understand the planet’s predicament, explore solutions and, most importantly, take the conversation from the streets, into the boardrooms of some of the world’s largest polluters and influential companies. 

This inspiring and rollicking journey, where ‘School of Rock’ meets ‘An Inconvenient Truth, results in the children forming a ‘Future Council’ to advise and influence the world's most powerful companies on their decisions that impact nature.
