Webinar: What’s so bad about Rising Tides? Teaching Sea Level Rise

June 17, 2020 - -

Is sea level rise really something we need to worry about?
As an educator, how can I teach this stuff?
In this webinar, we will look at the past and future sea level rise, its link to anthropogenic climate change, and how to present this topic to students and the public in an educational context. We will also address the question of predicting climate change over the next decades and centuries. We will then look at some of the expected impacts in low-lying coastal zones, in terms of coastal submersion, accelerated coastal erosion, saltwater intrusion, and how sea level rise combines with other consequences of climate change to create new risks.
This webinar will be helpful for teachers and educators who are new to the subject, as well as to those with a science background hoping to improve their communication skills to the general public.
Webinar in English: Wednesday, June 17th, 3 to 4 p.m. AT.
