Season 3: Let's listen to children and young people!
We often talk about them, but without them. Yet children and young people are in the best position to express themselves on the issues that concern them. What is their reality? What do they need? What are the issues that matter to them? This season will be created entirely with children and young people, from the choice of topics to the editing of the episode.





Season 2 - "Who are these humanitarians? "
Terre des hommes employs nearly 2,500 people worldwide. Whether they work from our headquarters in Switzerland or directly in the field in one of our 35 countries of intervention, our colleagues are numerous and yet each of them has their own story, a unique background and varied motivations. In Season 2 of The Field, discover some of these incredible profiles, all of whom have one thing in common: a commitment to improving the well-being of children. Let Ivana Goretta - spokesperson for the organisation and Isabel Zbinden - communications officer at Tdh - take you on a journey in this bilingual season. Episodes in French or English as you wish!
