Urban Resilience (Series 4 Parts - English)

If you could make a difference in your city, would you?
The French and English documentary series Urban Resilience not only challenges you to think differently about your city but empowers viewers to raise questions on how to make and create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

This original series, created by visual storytellers Chrystelle Maechler and Andreas Krätschmer, takes viewers on a candid journey that grapples with difficult questions, while pointing towards a promising path forward. The four fifteen-minute episodes, which explore themes such as the sharing economy, green initiatives, food insecurity and social justice, invite viewers to be agents of change in their own small way.


Résilience Urbaine (Series 4 Parts - French)

Et si la transformation de nos villes était à portée de main? La série documentaire Résilience urbaine nous pousse à voir nos espaces urbains sous un angle nouveau, en mettant en lumière un éventail d'actions, petites et grandes, qui contribuent à rendre nos communautés plus durables.

Conçue par Chrystelle Maechler et Andreas Krätschmer, cette série originale présente les grands enjeux qui pèsent sur nos villes, tout en ouvrant des pistes d'espoir. Les quatre épisodes, de quinze minutes chacun, explorent des thèmes telles que l'économie du partage, l'écologie locale, l'insécurité alimentaire et la justice sociale, et invite les spectateurs à devenir eux aussi, à leur façon, des agents de changement.

Penseurs, bâtisseurs, leaders communautaires : Résilience urbaine donne la parole aux citadines et citadins qui incarnent l'esprit de résilience à l'échelle locale.
