TED Talk: How Aziza Chaouni Brought a River, and Her City, Back to Life

It’s important to remember your roots, no matter where life takes you. Aziza Chaouni is a talented and successful architect who, despite her reputation in the trade, put aside her ego and went back to her hometown of Fez, Moroco, where her skills were desperately needed. The combination of population growth, pollution, and unplanned land use turned the once sacred and flourishing Fez River into a river of trash. This is her heroic story about using what we know and channeling it for something good rather than for profit. Be inspired and enjoy!
