The Race to Save The World is a climate documentary with a uniquely optimistic approach. It follows passionate activists whose single-minded focus is the creation of a sustainable world for future generations. These climate warriors, ages 15 to 72, are in the trenches fighting for a livable future, regardless of the personal cost. Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Gantz brings an urgent and intimate portrait of the protests, arrests, courtroom drama, and family turmoil these activists endure as they push for change. The Race to Save The World is an energizing call-to-action that inspires viewers to quit waiting on the sidelines and start making their voices heard.

Since its creation in 2017, We Don’t Have Time has grown to be the world’s most influential social media platform for the climate. On the platform, people who want to be a part of the solution to the climate crisis engage in constructive dialogues with businesses, organizations and decision-makers to accelerate the climate transition.

Courageous people who have been willing to put their bodies on the line for issues they cared about have moved our country forward in so many ways, over so many years. As The Race to Save the World shows us, that passion and commitment is alive and well, with diverse people - from teens to grandmas - engaging in the time-honored tradition of protest and civil disobedience to combat the climate crisis. I hope everyone will watch this film and be inspired to join these everyday heroes in the struggle of our lifetime.

“These are important stories, told in engaging fashion- and I can testify that there are similar scenes from every corner of the planet. The fight to halt the destruction of the planet's climate system may be the biggest movement in earth history, and these brave people help tell a tale everyone needs to hear!”

- Bill McKibben, Founder 350.0rg

“Successful social movements always have a small number of deeply-committed people willing to take extraordinary risks. The Race offers a frank look at some Americans who have chosen to place their bodies at the "tip of the spear" in the fight for climate justice. Their courage, and their resolute optimism, is inspiring.” – Denis Hayes, Environmental and solar power advocate, coordinator of the first Earth Day and Founder of the Earth Day Network

“There is still time to prevent catastrophic climate change. This powerful film shows how each of us can use our voice and our actions to save this planet from destruction. Watch it and be inspired to make a difference.”Michael Mann, Author of The New Climate War

The huge personal risks people are taking every day to save our planet from toxic fossil fuel interests pulsates throughout The Race To Save The World. The courage of the climate activists featured - young and old - gives goosebumps. Story-telling, litigation and civil disobedience are essential to creating a greener, healthier and fairer future for all.

Jennifer Morgan, Executive Director of Greenpeace International.
