The brain trust.

MadeGood: “Un-Wreck the Future” - 2 mins 23s

As the fallout from the UN's 'code red for humanity' report continues, organic snack brand MadeGood are bent on cracking climate change before it's too late. Yet as the teenage cast of this likeable film discover, there are no easy answers. We do like that one suggests death is the best solution before he's (figuratively) shot down.

A subsequent wander around town is a useful framing device, with the cast allowed to let their minds wander in tandem. This allows Christmas cracker jokes and nods to fairground pumpkins ("They don't let you eat those") to pepper the conversation, making the result feel natural instead of laboured. A personable contribution to the climate debate.
