Our relationship to nature has to combine economic development and ecological concerns. In this episode: the forest of the Landes is composed of immense pine forests that protect surrounding villages from the dune du Pilat, a huge sand dune that used to advance inland at a rate of 40m per year. The forest is also the economic engine of Aquitaine, France.
