tells the story of how a group of unknown British engineers came to be
nominated for the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize when they decided to make wind
turbines instead of bombs.
At a time when climate injustice is fanning the flames of inequality THE PLAN looks at how this group of eco-pioneering aerospace workers took control for the sake of the planet. Their heroism has been forgotten, but as the climate crisis dominates public debate there’s a vital lesson to be learnt from their story.
This special screening will be followed by a panel discussion including Director Steve Sprung, and former Lucas Aerospace designer Brian Salisbury.

“This film captures a
unique moment in our history - highly skilled workers showing how to turn
swords into ploughshares. If we want to transform society, this is a good place

piece of work, reflecting on the dark consequences of capitalism on society and
proposing an encouraging alternative for a troubling present.”
