1 Why live in a danger zone?
This lesson, we’ll find out why people still live near plate edges, even though it’s dangerous. And also about ways that volcanoes benefit us.

2 Millions of people live near plate edges, where there’s a high risk of earthquakes and eruptions. Why don’t they move somewhere safer?


4 The good news is – danger zones also bring benefits – thanks mainly to volcanoes.
