Back to Our Future
A global documentary series about restoration and survival
In a world where climate catastrophe seems to grow at a dizzying pace,
we invite you to be a part of the change needed to return our climate and planet to a state where all life can thrive
Back to Our Future is a climate solutions documentary - not a climate fear documentary. It takes a compelling, inspiring, surprising, independent look at an little known, but fast-emerging field: climate restoration.
If we can restore the climate with nature-based methods, dramatically drop our emissions of greenhouse gases, and restore ecosystems on a vast scale, then we may just be able to turn our civilization away from the abyss - to repair and stabilize our planet, climate and civilization.
This is our moonshot moment: do we accept a future of dystopia? Or fight for a wiser, kinder, more stable and more meaningful future, by restoring our climate to pre-industrial, safe levels? The choice is ours.
