Aziza Chaouni: How I brought a River, and My City, Back to Life

Asset Category: 
Asset Abstract: 

The Fez River winds through the medina of Fez, Morocco—a mazelike medieval city that’s a World Heritage site. Once considered the “soul” of this celebrated city, the river succumbed to sewage and pollution, and in the 1950s was covered over bit by bit until nothing remained. TED Fellow Aziza Chaouni recounts her 20 year effort to restore this river to its former glory, and to transform her city in the process.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

Even though classes on topics such as computers and network security are usually dry, I found this class to be interesting and full of useful information. Time seemed to fly by when we were in class. Although the booklets and lessons are advanced, they are also very clear and straightforward.
