In 13 episodes of 6 minutes each, the series Cycling for Democracy is travelling around the world to discover local civic initiatives, all dealing with environmental issues. Can democracy save the environment?
With this episode, Nicolas takes us far away, in Palu, Indonesia, where Abizar and Fithriyyah are among the leading figures of Seangle, a social innovation lab. By focusing on marine debris, the two young activists and their initiative have a mission to tackle environmental issues through a wide range of local actions spanning from seashore cleaning to experimental educational workshops.
