Two hundred million people currently live in areas that would be destroyed by a one metre rise in sea level.
Examine this in the classroom by using a map of the world's mega cities to investigate where the effects of sea level rise would have the greatest impact.
This is a great interactive way to explore the consequences of climate change with your students.
Kate Amis, Schools Liaison and Widening Participation Officer for the School of Geography at Queen Mary University of London, shared this idea after hearing Professor Jonathan Bamber (University of Bristol) speak about Impacts of projected climate change at Day 1 of our New Teacher Subject Days course 2017/18.
Schools Programme members can download the resources from the event in the PTI Staffroom.
