70/30

70/30

Czech premiere

Student activists successfully made climate change the theme of the 2019 Danish parliamentary elections. The country then issued one of the world’s most ambitious climate plans: a law that intends to reduce emissions by 70% by 2030.

Danish director Phie Ambo’s film goes behind the scenes of the preparation of a breakthrough law, dramatic political negotiations and the tireless efforts of student activists. All have the same goals but different ideas about how to attain them. Also, the adoption of the Climate Act doesn’t mean the battle has been won. Denmark is the EU’s biggest petroleum and natural gas producer, an activity that brings billions of dollars into the country annually, and so actually achieving carbon neutrality remains elusive. Will Danish politicians, activists, and petroleum industry representatives find common ground and transform the contents of the Climate Act into reality?

Impact

In the film 70/30, we watch the Danish government strive to enforce laws in accordance with a sustainable way of life. ACT NOW is a United Nations campaign that encourages each of us to do so through an intuitive app. The number of small but substantial acts for the good of the climate that this app has already recorded is now approaching five million. Download it too and help pass this milestone!
