Phie Ambo, Denmark, 2021

98 min.DK/Documentary

In the spring of 2019 thousands of young Danes took to the streets. They ditched school to demonstrate for the climate, they mobilized their parents and grandparents and demanded climate action NOW! When the national election came later that year, it was evident that the climate needed to be a central part of the political agenda to win. Now, it is time for the new government to put action behind their words. Is it possible for the politicians, citizens and the industry to collaborate and make Denmark a green pioneer country – or will the ambitions fade as reality shows its ugly head?
