Steart Marshes

Task: Design a poster explaining the benefits of Steart Marshes for protecting the local community against the effects of climate change.

Critics of the project claimed that it was a waste of money that should have been spent on other flood prevention schemes.

Your poster should include information about

  • Why sea levels are rising
  • Why the area is prone to flooding
  • How marshes can protect the surrounding area
  • How the marsh is created
  • Other benefits, for example to wildlife and for tourism
