Water can be scarce even in parts of Europe considered rich in resources. Through a research project on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in France, we discover that in the dry Alps near Briançon, men created gravitational irrigation canals in the Middle Ages, that is still maintained today and characterized as sustainable. But this ancient and fragile knowledge is at risk of disappearing in the modern world, which prioritizes efficiency and profit rather than resilience and the respect for nature. A handful of passionate men seek to safeguard this heritage.
