Through the generous support of philanthropic and strategic outreach partners Damon feels fortunate to now be driving change in many different areas, including through hundreds of Australian schools and the new free smartphone app, which is allowing users to track their sugar consumption every day in a fun and engaging way. On the back of the enormous success of That Sugar Film and That Sugar Book, Damon recently brought us That Sugar Guide which he has co-written with his wife Zoe. He is currently working on his new documentary ‘2040’ - a vision board of how the world could look if we were to act on the good ideas available to us right now. It crosses subjects of climate change, economics, wellbeing, design and innovation, education and more. Damon is a passionate advocate for good health and is determined to help people find a happier way of living.
