It takes a village to raise a child, but few of us live in villages anymore. Liz Lian tackles the isolation of modern parenting and encourages us to create modern villages to help us be happier parents.

The intro animation was produced as a collaboration between TEDxBasel and the Hochschule Luzern. This animation was created by Zaide Kutay and Christelle Serrano.
