Connecting Atlantic communities threatened by sea level change
In the next 100 years Atlantic sea levels are expected to rise by up to 1m. Thousands of communities will be displaced, unique landscapes will be lost and the geography of the Atlantic will be changed forever.
Atlantic Rising is an education project raising awareness about the consequences of sea level rise for low-lying communities around the Atlantic.
The project is creating a network between schools around the Atlantic rim, building relationships between places as far apart as the Scottish Isles, West Africa, Guyana and Canada.
In August 2009 the project team sets out on an eleven month overland journey around the ocean’s coastline. On this expedition they will visit communities and schools, filming and holding workshops to build up a vast network of over 15,000 students, whose futures are threatened by sea level rise.
