Film clips of Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch inhabitants
What are the effects of World Heritage status on a site – and how does it change the inhabitants’ attitudes, their initiative to act, and the way they identify with the site? These questions formed the core of a 2014 Outcome Monitoring study and are explored in the following documentary films. Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch inhabitants speak of their experiences, what World Heritage means to them, and how they are active in their region.
All clips are in Swiss German, with German subtitles.
