Landscapes around the world are being changed by human activities, from melting glaciers, to warming and rising seas, to the spread of invasive species. With scientist and National Geographic Explorer Alizé Carrère as our guide, ADAPTATION tells the story of communities in four parts of the world who have devised remarkable ways to confront – and surmount – the imminent environmental crises they face. This breathtaking series is an inspiring look at what’s possible when people must adapt to environmental changes that ultimately affect us all.
Alizé Carrère is a National Geographic Explorer, filmmaker, and PhD student researching and documenting human adaptations to environmental change. Raised in a house wrapped around a 300-year old oak tree, her childhood primed her for a unique perspective on what it means to live in a dynamic environment. After moving to Montreal to complete a B.A. at McGill University in Environmental Sciences and International Development, she spent time living in Panama before returning to McGill to complete an M.Sc. in Integrated Water Resource Management. During this time, she lived in the Middle East working on the relationship between electronic waste and water pollution in Israel and Palestine.
