Alizé Carrère is a National Geographic Explorer researching and documenting climate change adaptation in practice. With the persistence of climate change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. At a time when doomsday narratives dominate the current climate conversation, adaptation plays an increasingly vital role for both its practical application and as a hopeful reminder of our resilience as a species. With support from National Geographic, Alizé Carrère has been documenting case studies in Bangladesh, Madagascar, India, Norway and the United States. From these explorations, she has created the web series Adaptation, revealing human ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity.
The first episode of Adaptation, “Bangladesh” recently had its premiere at the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival. Alizé Carrère will present the episode in full and will discuss her experiences followed by audience Q & A.
