Showing solutions, telling a feel-good story… this may be the best way to solve the ecological, economical and social crises that our countries are going through. After a special briefing for the journal Nature announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent, together with a team of four people, carried out an investigation in ten different countries to figure out what may lead to this disaster and above all how to avoid it.

During their journey, they met the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow's world…

The film shows the experiments thought up by motivated pioneers who are working for a sustainable world. The examples are not necessary transferable to the world system.

However, it must be mentioned that some statements are not correct, especially in regard to finance, that banks are represented as funds. This is a shortened and simplified explanation in terms of money economy and can lead to false interpretations. The mechanism that money will be "created" in the short term (100% temporary) is linked to the mechanics of lending, not the decision of a bank. In sum, a bank can only lend a part of what it has in deposits.

"Tomorrow“ is a highly inspiring documentary. The solution-oriented film aims to reach a broad audience and strongly appeals to our sense of responsibility.

"Tomorrow“ draws many connections to our daily lives and presents many creative solutions and positive experiments. "Tomorrow“ presents many relevant topics related to a sustainable society.
