The film boldly portrays a future in which humanity will not only survive, but will flourish, thanks to changes in global paradigms and respect for the limitations of our planet's resources. Meet four prominent experts who deal with contemporary environmental, economic and social crises. Each of them postulates a system based on the universal principles of nature, reusing everything and not wasting anything.
The film reveals the secrets of an innovative concept of changing the world known as circularity. It is about an innovative, closed economic cycle that eliminates waste and saves the planet's resources. We learn the story of four visionaries: 102-year-old legendary inventor Dr. James Lovelock, bionic engineer Janine Benyus, designer Arthur Huang and financier John Fullerton, whose remarkable experiences have changed the way we think about the future of mankind. Each of them calls for a fundamental redefinition of the modern idea of food, cities, the financial system and the fashion industry. They postulate a system based on the universal principles of nature, reusing everything and limiting the waste of available resources. However, this circular economy model, long defended by academic and institutional leaders, also raises many questions and challenges. If circularity can help create a better future, why do we hear so little about it? What would have to happen at different levels: international politics, business and social activities for this system to bring ecological and economic benefits? Where is the responsibility for this change and how can we encourage politicians to do so? Finally, can people of all walks of life contribute to the acceleration of change and how?
The film screening will be heald with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Poland.
