The mission of The New Normal Foundation, formerly, Making Of The Future Foundation, is to create meaningful change for a regenerative planet.

We make ecological documentaries like “Normal is Over”.

We are a new organization with enthusiastic board members in The Netherlands and the USA. All board members work on a voluntary basis. We are proud to announce the non-profit 501 c 3 in California, and the ANBI status in the Netherlands. ( RSIN: 856886634). Your donations are tax deductible.

Any donation will  support the research and filming by Renée Scheltema and her crew for the next ecological documentarie(s).



  • The mission of The New Normal Foundation is to create meaningful change for a regenerative planet. We do that by the film “Normal is Over”, by making documentaries on different themes and by building a movement on a regenerative planet.

Funding received:

  • The income of the Foundation is at the moment very low. Costs are covered by personal investments of people and by occasional funds and sponsors.

Funding managed:

  • The Foundation does not have any assets, other then our intellectual property.

Our current activities:

  • Reaching as many people, worldwide, with the film Normal is Over to inspire people to change. The film is shown in many countries. Both in public screening in theaters, companies and governmental organisations. And in private settings, where people can watch the   video by using a password.   
  • Building a movement of people who want to act on phenomena like climate change, species extinction, and depletion of national resources through Partnerships and Films.  At the moment in 2022 and 2023 this activity is on hold. 
  • At the moment the film maker Renee Scheltema is traveling to create sequel documentaries which focus more deeply on solutions to reverse global ecological decline.

Any funding to our Non-Profit, tax deductible  Foundation will be greatly appreciated to help her on this mostly self-funded journey.

Normal is Over The Movie is about humanity’s wisest response to climate change, species extinction, resource depletion, income inequality, and the connection between these issues.
This award-winning documentary is connecting the dots: A look at the financial and economical paradigm underlying our planetary problems, while offering various SOLUTIONS to reverse the path of global decline.
