"What if showing solutions and telling a positive story was the best way to address the ecological, economic and social challenges the world is facing today?" Demain, 2015 [FR] “Et si montrer les solution raconter une histoire positive était la meilleure façon de résoudre les défis environnementaux, économiques et sociaux auxquels le monde est confronté aujourd’hui” Demain, 2015

Inspired by the French documentary "Demain", we decided to embark on a journey looking for people and initiatives in Portugal working daily towards a more sustainable future.

Tired of constant news about the urgency of climate change, we decided to hit the road to raise awareness in society on the issue. The goal was to unite politicians and citizens to create a genuine sustainability movement.

This is how our project was born!

A documentary series that will introduce several projects in Portugal exploring topics related to sustainability.

But we don’t want to make yet another documentary focused on all the issues we are facing globally. We seek a positive approach, focusing on good examples already out there or the people implementing viable alternatives for the near future. And we want to reach them in the most sustainable way possible (bicycle, public transportation, electrical vehicles) raising awareness of the importance of rethinking mobility and the current energy system.

Let's gather all these examples and show how our world of tomorrow can be, today!

Fugindo ao paradigma habitual de documentários ambientais, queremos co-produzir algo positivo que se foque em inspirar através de exemplos!

[FR]

Après avoir été inspirés par le documentaire français “Demain”, nous avons décidé de nous embarquer dans un voyage en quête de personnes et d’initiatives au Portugal qui oeuvrent quotidiennement pour un futur plus durable.

C’est comme comme ça que notre projet a vu le jour: une série documentaire qui présentera plusieurs projets au Portugal autour des sujets fondamentaux du développement durable.

Cependant, ne nous souhaitons pas simplement produire un documentaire de plus autour de  tous les problèmes auxquels nous sommes confrontés au niveau global. Nous avons choisi d’opter pour une approche positive qui se focalise sur les bonnes initiatives déjà existantes et sur les personnes qui implémentent des alternatives viables dans un avenir proche. Et nous voulons les atteindre de la manière la plus écologique possible (vélo, transports publics, véhicules électriques) afin d’augmenter la prise de conscience sur la nécessité de repenser la mobilité et le système énergétique actuel.

Collectons tous ces exemples et montrons dès aujourd’hui comment sera le monde de demain!

Budget and due dates

During the project’s first phase, from November to April, we will map all the initiatives, projects and people in Portugal linked to sustainability. We will then start a journey across the country throughout May and June to film several selected projects. We expect to have the documentary ready by autumn 2019.

Mapear projetos em Portugal continental vai permitir criar uma rede de iniciativas e pessoas que vão poder colaborar mais entre si!

The dream of making this documentary began to take form with first funding support from AMI’s international programme "No PLANet B". We are still short in part of the budget and why we need your help. This crowdfunding aims to cover: 

  • Filming gear;
  • Communication management - strategy and social networks;
  • Basic costs for the launching event and crowdsourcing campaign - happening in mid-January in Lisbon.

[FR]

Au cours de la première phase du projet, de novembre à avril, nous recenserons toutes les initiatives, projets et personnes liés à la durabilité au Portugal. Nous entamerons ensuite un voyage à travers le pays pendant les mois de mai et juin pour filmer plusieurs projets sélectionnés. Enfin, le documentaire devrait être fin prêt à l’automne 2019.

Le rêve de réaliser ce documentaire a commencé à prendre forme grâce au premier soutien financier du programme international d’AMI "No PLANet B". Il nous manque encore une petite partie du budget et c’est pourquoi nous avons besoin de votre aide. Le but de ce crowdfunding est de couvrir:

  • le matériel de tournage,
  • la gestion de la communication - stratégie et réseaux sociaux,
  • les coûts de base pour l'événement de lancement et la campagne de crowdsourcing - qui auront lieu mi-janvier à Lisbonne.
