Flickers of the Future calls on young content creators to tell a different story - one where humans and planet thrive together.

Global Action Plan, alongside Richard Curtis CBE and a host of incredible broadcast and environment experts, have invited UK filmmakers and creatives between the ages of 18-29 to create a human story of a sustainable future.


Over the past year, Global Action Plan has run a nationwide competition resulting in over 100 entries from which our shortlisted finalists will be supported through to production.


Our five shortlisted finalists are currently being mentored by a professional team of scriptwriters and TV production experts, getting ready to pitch to major broadcasters.


"This could be the most important drama of our time, a much needed route to drive the rapid and major changes we need to avert a climate crisis and achieve the United Nations Global Goals. We’re in the thick of a real emergency for planet and the people - so I urge you to get involved today and put your best creative energy to saving our weird, worrying but still wonderful world."  Flickers of the Future patron Richard Curtis CBE
