Tomorrow starts today

The world can be a tough place to live. Clime change, economic crisis,  globalization, natural disasters, poverty... Every day we hear are all those issues being addressed on media, at the bar, in our jobs, at schools, but how many time we hear about solutions? We are 7 billion of people in the world, is it possible that no one has thought about solutions? Or even more important, is it possible that no one tried some solutions before? No, it's not.

After hearing about the possibility the extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent put together a team and travelled 10 countries looking for solutions for the issues that could lead to this disaster. On their way they filmed this documentary so show how creativity and will power can transform our lives and live on this planet.

During their journey, they met different people actively engage in reshaping agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education with two main goals: improve their life within their community and leave a better world for future generation. What else do they have in common? Positive action. More than addressing the issues with words, they are designing the solution with their action by trying and sometimes failing, and trying again, trying better to figure out what could be tomorrow's world.
