From Greta Thunberg to the Extinction Rebellion. For the young activists the rebellion is both a means and an end in the struggle for the climate of the future.

School strikes, demonstrations and civil disobedience. The new wave of young activists, who spearheaded by Greta Thunberg have taken to the streets all over the world, use everything they can to awaken the politicians and the rest of the population to the climate change that will shape their future. NOW is a film about the drive of the young activists, their fear of climate change and their willingness to find new and alternative ways to live in a sustainable future. Hardened activists such as the Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus and the iconic rock poet Patti Smith contribute with decades of experience in working for change - now! (CPH:DOX)
