2 Coastal Change: The Future 1. Label features in the landscape Bar of shingle Tourist honeypot of Torcross

3 Coastal Change: The Future 1. Label features in the landscape 2. Make a note of how these features could be affected by climate change Bar of shingle Tourist honeypot of Torcross With rising sea levels, inundation from the sea is likely, significantly impacting on the National Nature reserve behind and destroying the road. Possible improved summers, and falling accessibility of flights increase tourism to the area.

4 Coastal Change: The Future 1. Label features in the landscape 2. Make a note of how these features could be affected by climate change NB: This could easily be done on a tablet/Ipad using an app like Skitch Bar of shingle Tourist honeypot of Torcross With rising sea levels, inundation from the sea is likely, significantly impacting on the National Nature reserve behind and destroying the road. Possible improved summers, and decreased viability of flying (cost, env impact etc) increase tourism to the area. Likely to become the main road access into Torcross in the future Areas which is likely to experience regular flooding and become brackish

8 The future cannot be predicted, but preferred futures can and should be envisioned, invented, implemented, continuously evaluated, revised, and re-envisioned. Thus, another major task of futures studies is to facilitate individuals and groups in formulating, implementing, and re-envisioning their preferred futures. ( Dator 2005)

9 Now Past Probable Preferable Based on an original idea from Dave Hicks mapping the future with timelines www.teaching4abetterworld.co.uk www.teaching4abetterworld.co.uk Possible Possible

16 Fieldwork What are the possibilities for service provision in the town in the future? Pre-fieldwork From the historical images, what is the service provision like in this town today? 50/100 years ago 50/100 years in the future Fieldwork

17 Crickhowell, Powys, Wales (NP8 1BD ) Survey of shops and services - interview shop owners/workers about their customers Historic market town on the River Usk, rapidly growing since 1960s Population 2065, average age 45 (most people 45-65) Relatively affluent population of retirees, with more moving in Tourist hub for Brecon Beacons Well connected on A40 but no railway station Houses mostly detached and semi- detached, owner occupied Mostly professional people, little unemployment Possible – Preferable/Probable service provision in 20/50 years? KS3 values, KS4 roles (local elderly, local youth, local councillor...), A level themes (shops, services, transport)

18 1. Label features on the map or photo which affect the hydrological response of the river Hydrological Change 2. What do you think is likely to happen to that feature in the future (if anything)? 3. (a) How might this change the likely storm hydrograph for the catchment? 3. (b) What further fieldwork could you do to help answer this question? 4. Therefore what actions/management should be put in place to better manage this catchment? Woodlands – likely to be cut down more regularly as demand for wood increase
