The global warming situation is often presented as just doom and gloom, but French directors Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent decided to come at it from a different angle in 2015. Their award-winning documentary Demain (Tomorrow) highlights solutions while telling a feel-good story – as they say, “this may be the best way to solve the ecological, economical and social crises that our countries are going through”.
As part of RAH! and the fifteenth ESRC Festival of Social Science, watch the film then take part in a discussion about protecting and engaging with Manchester’s green and blue spaces. Researchers, artists, designers and writers from Manchester School of Art, Manchester Met, MICRA and University of Manchester will be joined by communities, activists, ecological organisations and policy-makers for an afternoon exploring the values of urban nature for wellbeing, ageing and biodiversity – and you’re invited!
