Australia’s top grossing film for 2019 comes to Santa Barbara with an evening at the West Winds Drive-In Movie Theater
COVID safe & secure for a fun & inspiring summer evening

What will the future look like in 2040? As a parent of a four-year old daughter, award winning filmmaker Damon Gameau deeply contemplates the effects of climate change over the next 20 years and how it will impact the planet and his daughter’s future.

Although the future looks a bit uncertain, and even scary, Gameau begins to think we might have the means to do better if we simply embraced the best solutions already available and shifted them into the mainstream. With this in mind, Gameau embarks on a journey around the world to learn what solutions might actually already exist, and discovers some remarkable and inspiring people with stories to tell, and innovations to share.

Structured as a visual letter to his daughter 2040 blends traditional documentary footage with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter and the planet. Gameau is both the storyteller and the active researcher, and while taking his film worldwide, has been conducting interactive public webinars with input from additional climate activists and experts.

The evening will start with a brief film about a potential Marine Permaculture project hoping to locate in California. Brian von Herzen of the Climate Foundation is featured in the 2040 film showcasing Marine Permaculture as one of the most promising solutions for solving climate change by restoring the health of kelp forests around the world, and has launched a fundraiser for their California project.

The event takes place on Monday, August 10, 7:30pm at the West Wind Drive In, located at 907 S Kellogg Ave, Goleta, CA 93117. 

Tickets available at the entrance kiosk the night of the event (no advance tickets). $10 per person, or $20 per car.

Eco-Film Night is a Community Event Hosted by Santa Barbara Permaculture Network

Co-sponsors: Santa Barbara Permaculture Network, Community Environmental Council (CEC), Blue Sky Biochar, World Business Academy, The Optimist Daily, Explore Ecology, Regenerative Landscape Alliance, Teeccino, Santa Barbara Aquaponics, Hour Books & the Santa Barbara Independ

ALSO FUNDRAISER MARINE PERMACULTURE  to develop a site on the California coast and help project on the Pacific Ocean 

First phase $250,000 – Second phase $500,00 

The planet is heating up and Marine Permaculture can help cool it down. Your donation goes toward supporting Marine Permaculture in the Philippines, where we are expanding our seaweed arrays.


The planet is getting too warm and the ocean is feeling it the most, with 93% of the global warming heat going into the ocean. Because of the warming oceans, seaweed around the world is dying. But by mimicking Mother Nature, we can draw down CO2 with Marine Permaculture. 

Marine Permaculture irrigates seaweed on a floating array with deep water. The seaweed creates ecosystems, while absorbing CO2. Then the seaweed is dropped into the middle and deep ocean, where the ocean holds the carbon for hundreds to thousands of years.

At the Climate Foundation, we are building upwelling Marine Permaculture arrays and it’s working! The seaweed is growing faster on our arrays compared to the traditional local seaweed farms. This faster growth is providing essential ecosystem support- now we have fish inhabiting the array and laying eggs, along with larger, predatory fish, dolphins and plankton-eating whale sharks! 

Together, with our supporting partner, 2040, we can make vanishing ecosystems thrive, regenerate seaweed forests that absorb tens of tons of CO2 per acre per year, help seaweed farmers and fishermen have livelihoods and help sustain growing populations. This scaling effort will unlock the path to commercial-scale financeable Marine Permaculture regenerative projects.
We are very happy to also acknowledge the support from the Grantham Trust, Just One Tree and Dr. Bronner’s and other wonderful donors.
