  • University of East Anglia: Dr Stefanie Nolte, Lecturer in Marine Ecosystem Services in the School of Environmental Sciences, will present Living on the edge – Coastal ecosystems under Global Change. Coastal ecosystems have long been known for their biodiversity and provide a habitat for many characteristic plants and animals. More recently they have been recognised for their potential to mitigate and adapt to global change through their capacity for carbon capture and coastal protection. But how will they respond to global change and how can we best manage them?
  • University of Glasgow: Larissa Naylor, Professor of Geomorphology and Environmental Geography in the School of Geographical & Earth Sciences will present A Sea-Level-Wise Future For Scotland’s CoastsScotland’s coast is naturally dynamic and changes through time. Here we present recent research findings on sea level rise trends, recent coastal change and predicted future coastal erosion due to sea level rise around Scotland. We showcase the trailblazing Scottish Government Dynamic Coast project where University of Glasgow’s Geography department led the research. We also introduce the concept of coastal climate change adaptation – to help society learn to become ’Sea Level Wise’ and live with coastal climate change impacts.


In this insight4me Geography online event for schools and colleges, University of Glasgow and University of East Anglia will each have roughly 30 minutes to deliver a punchy, topic based ‘micro’ talk. Within an overall session theme of Coastal Management, the universities have the freedom to choose their own focus and use the time to convey the key points of the case studies for the students.

insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for Year 12 & 13 students, and equivalent. The sessions directly support students’ current studies by giving an insight into particular curriculum areas whilst affording an understanding of how these subjects continue beyond A-levels, T-levels, IB, BTEC and equivalent qualifications, and how they vary between universities.



Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Geography and related disciplines. Student groups, and individual students and teachers are very welcome to join us.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Geography at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
