Taking The Future Into Account aims to convey how human behavior and the threat of climate change and environmental problems are strongly interlinked. A description of the problems humans have in taking the future into account and favouring short-term gains rather than considering long term consequences are discussed. Solutions are put forward for policymakers and individuals who are interested in social change and overcoming the conditioned habit of discounting the future.

The film is rooted in the scientific understanding that climate change is a real, credible threat to human societies across the planet, and that a crucial way to tackle this global problem is to understand how human behaviour can be shaped towards taking the future into account and ways in which sustainable values can be reinforced.
