Film We Love – 2040

In our journey towards a sustainable future, inspiration can come from unexpected places. For us at Alsahwa Farm, one such source of inspiration is the thought-provoking documentary “2040”. Directed by Damon Gameau, this film isn’t just a documentary – it’s a beacon of hope, offering a compelling vision of what our world could look like in 2040 if we embrace sustainable solutions today.

“2040” transcends the typical doomsday narrative often associated with environmental documentaries. Instead, it presents a refreshing perspective, focusing on innovative solutions and positive outcomes. From renewable energy to regenerative agriculture, the film explores a range of technologies and practices that have the potential to transform our world for the better.

What resonates most with us at Alsahwa Farm is the film’s emphasis on the power of collective action. “2040” reminds us that the solutions to our environmental challenges are within reach – but only if we work together. Whether it’s advocating for policy change, supporting sustainable businesses, or making small changes in our daily lives, each of us has a role to play in shaping a more sustainable future.

At Alsahwa Farm, we’re inspired by the message of “2040” because it aligns with our core values and mission. Like the film, we believe in the power of innovation and collaboration to create positive change. From our eco-conscious farming practices to our commitment to bringing people together as a community, local communities, we’re dedicated to building a more sustainable world for future generations.
