Residents in Canterbury-Bankstown are encouraged to attend a free screening of the Australian film ‘2040’, an uplifting documentary about creating a better future.

The upcoming screening will take place on Sunday 29 March at Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club.

It is part of the Wurridjal Festival, which is hosted by the Cooks River Alliance in March to celebrate the mullet migration north, which passes through the Cooks River.

Executive Officer of the Cooks River Alliance Sue Burton said: “The best thing about the 2040 film is it offers a hopeful vision for the future.”

“It’s very easy to feel helpless in the face of current environmental challenges and this film looks at the best solutions that already exist today to highlight how we can all make a difference now,” she said.

“The Wurridjal Festival reminds us all that for tens of thousands of years the river was healthy and a source of food for Aboriginal people.”

After the screening of 2040, a panel of sustainability experts will answer questions from the audience. They will also explore easily achievable goals and local actions people can take to make an immediate positive impact on the world around them.

Mayor of City of Canterbury Bankstown, Khal Asfour said Canterbury-Bankstown was incredibly proud to be involved with the festival and encouraged residents to attend the free screening.

“We are thrilled to be involved in the Wurridjal Festival, which acknowledges and celebrates the significance of the river and environment for the Aboriginal people of this area. Screening 2040 harnesses this on a large scale and does so in an educational way for people of all ages to gain something from it,” he said.
