Catching The Sun is a celebration of the green energy revolution and the power that new technologies, innovations and businesses have to solve the world’s most pressing environmental and social problems.  
Through interwoven character dramas spanning the US and China, Catching the Sun explores the global economic race to lead the clean energy future. Featuring Obama’s green jobs advisor, Van Jones, as well as the workers of the new green world, Catching the Sun looks beyond the climate change debate and explores how a green economy may actually be built.  
With countries like China investing in innovative technologies and capitalizing on this trillion-dollar opportunity, Catching the Sun tells the story of the global energy transition from the perspective of workers and entrepreneurs building solutions to income inequality and climate change.  
Join industry leaders Tom Quinn (Future Business Council), Leigh Ewbank (Friends of the Earth – Yes 2 Renewables) Damien Walsh (CEO Bank Australia) and Shalini Kantayya (award winning filmmaker from the USA) and find out what Australia can learn from America about capitalising on the international race to a clean economy. 
“Catching the Sun is positioning itself to become one of the most important clean-tech documentaries of our time.”
