About Inventing Tomorrow

Communities across the world are bearing the brunt of climate chaos, but how do they adapt to existing problems? In this rousing documentary, a group of young students channel their love of science to dream up ingenious solutions to confront the world’s environmental threats. Capturing its protagonists’ hopes and ambitions with love and humour, Inventing Tomorrow presents an inspiring portrait of an engaged generation.
