Tagline: Presented in partnership with Hyundai and the United Nations Development Programme, and narrated by Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley For Tomorrow – The Documentary is the story of grassroots innovators dedicated to fighting some of today’s most pressing sustainability issues. Through actions, big and small, everyday changemakers are tackling local problems and inspiring their communities with ingenuity, resilience and vision. Whether it’s a solar-powered car built from recycled materials to fight air pollution or a line of cleaning products made from food waste by someone with no chemistry background to fight waste management, grassroots solutions are setting the planet on a more sustainable path. But for a real breakthrough, governments, global institutions and the private sector must recognize these innovators and actively seek out their ideas.
From the streets of Baku to a farming community in the Andes and the mountains of Northern India, our documentary follows five innovators on their quest for real, actionable change. Their journey to innovation is never simple—how do you keep going when even your husband doesn’t believe in your idea?—but the power of their vision keeps them going.
Is the world ready to listen to them and change how it handles and solves global problems?
