Resurrecting Eden - Human Help for Nature's Own Resilience

4 x 52' or 4 x 43' / HD 

The series discovers projects around the world in which humans are helping to restore and strengthen nature. An undertaking ever more important in times of global pandemics, climate change and species extinction. Whether rainforests or coral reefs, river courses or marshlands: while bad news about the state of our planet mount up, these visionary and bold projects show that it is possible to counteract the destruction. But it’s not enough to just plant some more trees. To make use of and stimulate nature’s powers of resistance, we must understand the interplay and changes in the complex ecosystems that shape our planet. Wonderful, species-rich biotopes can then be revived and fortified against outside influences. The result is called resilience. The series shows that there’s an alternative to resignation: it’s time to seek a new relationship with nature – by resurrecting Eden.
