70/30 depicts the birth of the world’s most ambitious climate act. In 2019, thousands of Danish children and young people took to the streets. They ditched school to demonstrate for the climate, mobilized their parents and grandparents and demanded action NOW! When a general election was announced for later that year, it became clear that a green climate policy meant votes, and the climate instantly shot to the top of the agenda. Now the new government must act on their campaign promises. Will politicians, citizens and industry be able to join forces to make Denmark a green pioneer – or will the green ambitions be smothered as the new Climate Act collides with reality?
