Climate change is the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced – and it is also our greatest opportunity. We have the solutions we need, but we are in a race against the clock to implement them in time.

Oscar-winning documentary director Charles Ferguson:
I made TIME TO CHOOSE because climate change is the most important issue facing humanity and we urgently need broader understanding of how enormously we would all benefit from addressing it. Fortunately it is a challenge that we hold in common, and the film shows that across the globe, in myriad ways, people are coming together to find and implement solutions. We’re not too late, and our hope is that TIME TO CHOOSE will help audiences see both the tragedy that is unfolding and the remarkable and innovative ways in which humanity is finding a better way forward.

In making the film, my team and I traveled to parts of the world where climate solutions are not only politically unpopular – it is often personally dangerous to advocate them. I think it’s important for people to understand that the corruption, inequality and violence faced by many people the world over are tied to the pollution, waste and destruction that are fueling climate change. If we solve one, we help solve the other.

My most surprising discovery in making this film is also the most crucial fact about this issue: the solutions to climate change are already here, waiting for us. We saw them in places as diverse as Indonesia, Kenya, China, Western Europe and California. Everywhere we traveled, people were developing new ways of living and benefiting from them. Their stories and their work are what will lead us forward. http://www.timetochoose.com/about/
