Synopsis: The production directed by David Garret tells the story of how a group of neighbors in Europe manages to set aside the traditional energy system based on polluting fossil fuels to produce clean electricity themselves. “We The Power” follows friends, families and visionaries who, in the face of an adverse scenario, break down legislative barriers and empower small towns and their people.

This will be followed by a Cine Forum on the theme “Are we ready for energy communities?”

Moderation:

Film/documentary screening ‘Demain’

November 17th | 17:30-19:30 | Baluarte, Sala de Cámara

Synopsis: Following the publication of a study announcing the possible disappearance of part of humanity by 2100, Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent set out with a team of four people to launch their own research in ten countries to find out what could be causing such a catastrophe and, above all, how it could be avoided. During their journey, they met pioneers who were reinventing agriculture, energy, economics, democracy and education. By implementing these concrete, positive initiatives that are already underway in some places and proving that they work, the directors began to realize what the world of tomorrow might look like.
