Client: European Environment Agency (EEA)

Ace & Ace developed and produced 30+ films for European Environment Agency placed in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Urban Mining is a story from the TV-series called “Environmental Atlas of Europe” showcasing the electronics waste trail for Europe and the USA ending up in India’s deepest slums where entire families barter each component and try to excavate the resources locked inside. In the process they expose the environment and themselves to dangerous cocktails of toxic chemicals.

The Environmental Atlas of Europe is a UNEP-EEA-ESA joint project showcasing communities responding to environmental change across Europe. The films present a series of inspirational stories on how people are responding to climate change and in so doing, transforming their lives for a more sustainable future.
