The Earth's oceans are on the rise. Since 1900, global sea levels have risen steadily each year to a global average of about 20cm today, and they're still rising. By 2100, the sea could climb as much as 4.3m to 9.75m.

Rising Seas: Flooding, Climate Change and Our New World gives youth an eye-popping view of what the Earth might look like under the rising and falling water levels of climate change. Photographs juxtapose the present-day with that same area's projected future. The shocking images will help them understand the urgency for action. Key issues in today's news will be better understand, such as the 2015 Paris Protocol in which the world agreed to limit temperature increases to 2 degrees C (ideally 1.5 degrees).
