Up a Tree

Bodil Tummers & Hannah Cammeraat 21:14, Netherlands

Up a Tree captures activists in the Hambach Forest who are living in treehouses in order to protect the forest against the expansion of the adjacent lignite mine. A symbolic fight which got a deeper meaning in regard to the decision to phase out lignite by 2038.

We are Hannah Cammeraat and Bodil Tummers. We got to know each other during our time at the School of Journalism in the Netherlands. Throughout the course of our study, we have spent much time together. Therefore, we knew that working together as colleagues and spending hours in a small edit room was not going to be a problem.
