The Future We See

The Paris Agreement has galvanised global commitment to taking strong action on climate change. To limit the average global temperature rise to two degrees Celcius, the future will involve a mix of new technologies, business scenarios and personal decisionsThe Grantham Institute is working with policymakers, business leaders and researchers to evaluate decarbonisation pathways and help make the transition to a low-carbon future. ‘The Future We See’ is an animated film that encourages the public to think about how technologies can help to create a future without greenhouse gas emissions.
