Risk Habitat Megacity

A Helmholtz Research Initiative 2007 - 2011

Video documentation ,Santiago de Chile - Risk Habitat Megacity’

In this video documentation researchers from Chile and Germany present in brief three-to five-minute videos the topics of their work in the 'Risk-Habitat-Megacity Initiative' in Santiago de Chile. The documentation starts with an introductory video about the overall research initiative. Each of the following 7 videos introduces risks and opportunities specific to mega cities by using the example of Santiago de Chile. Statements of the inhabitants in combination with pictures of the mega city illustrate the risks. During the videos the researchers explain in more detail the problems of the city and show potential solutions for dealing with these. These videos draw a multifaceted picture of Santiago, because not only scientists are speaking but also the people who are affected by the problems.

1. Introductory Video 
2. Video: Land use management
3. Video: Social-spatial differentiation
4. Video: Energy system
5. Video: Transportation
6. Video: Air quality and health
7. Video: Water resources and services
8. Video: Waste management

The aim of the videos is to give people interested in science as well as the general public an insight into the different research fields of the initiative. Science becomes more transparent, clear, and gains a more personal touch through interviews and statements of the involved persons.

In 2010 the video project was accomplished by Sebastian Hoeing (media designer for audio and video) in close cooperation with the initiators of the research initiative 'Risk Habitat Megacity'.

All interviewees speak their native languages. To make the videos available to a broad general public they have been subtitled in English, Spanish and German.
