6:49 | Cities around the world are feeling the effects of climate change. Unfortunately, they don’t always have the right infrastructure to handle its impacts — which is one reason why cities are beginning to reimagine urban design.
25:55 | Reforestation works not only in the countryside, but also in the city.
11:26 | Planting Great Green Walls in an attempt to restore dry land has become a continental effort, led by governments and NGOs in both Africa and China. Now India has ambitious plans to do the same.
1:25:56 | The film team visits climate rescuers in Sudan, Indonesia and Europe. 65,000 acacias are growing in Darfur: a blessing for the bitterly poor region, as well as a carbon dioxide reservoir that can help limit global warming.
28:25 | Sea levels are rising due to climate change. Many coastal cities are at growing risk of flooding. Architects are trying to react to this development with new ideas, such as floating cities.
16:21 | A growing number of people believe that humanity is doomed because of climate change, while some are even full-blown preparing for a world post-collapse. Like Ben Green, who calls himself a “happy doomer”.
6:10 | Africa has ambitious plans to build a 8,000 km long wall of vegetation across the the Sahara desert.
7:59 | Nearly 40 percent of humanity lives near a coast — and no two coasts are the same. How can these communities build resilience to the increasing risks of climate change?
28:25 | In the Netherlands, climate change is far more than an abstract future danger.
14:11 | Taking us to her home of Barbados, where the hurricane season is unforgiving and freak storms are becoming more frequent, Alyssa-Amor Gibbons points to the brilliance of endemic designs that are built to work with nature.
5:20 | As the climate crisis continues to worsen, newer studies are finding that beavers play a vital role in dampening its effects — especially in areas prone to fire, drought, and even heat waves.
6:10 | Every year, ocean levels rise and high tides flood the low-lying Marshall Islands in the Pacific, destroying homes, salinating water supplies and disrupting livelihoods.
Verden har desperat brug for klimainitiativer i stor skala, og projektet “The Great Green Wall” er netop sådan et megaprojekt. Men fungerer det?
8:50 | Susan Ruffo highlights the ocean’s ready-made solutions to the climate crisis: From storing carbon to providing protection to coastal communities.
10:17 | How does Bangladesh keep its citizens safe even as the planet heats up? And what can rich countries learn from it?
10:04 | The climate crisis is worsening floods around the world – but there’s another reason we see so much damage from these disasters. In many places, infrastructure was built with no regard for increasing rainfalls or warmer temperatures.
28:25 | Extreme weather is occurring more frequently worldwide. Rising sea levels and heavy rain are causing devastating floods. Most researchers agree that these are the consequences of climate change.
6:57 | We visit Annapolis, Maryland, a state capitol, home of the U.S. Naval Academy, and seaside tourist town that has seen a dramatic increase in floods in recent years.
4:24 | Viden om klimatilpasning samlet ét sted.
5:34 | Six years after Hurricane Sandy, Hoboken, New Jersey, is redesigning itself with an eye toward the storms of the future.
I takt med stigende temperaturer, globalt, bliver det danske vejr vådere. Og vildere. Det er vi nødt til at tilpasse os, og det bliver en regional og kommunal opgave.
10:38 | As Vicki Arroyo says, it’s time to prepare our homes and cities for the new climate, with its increased risk of flooding, drought and uncertainty.
