Compiled from live recordings of workshops held at various locations in Western Australia, this video explains the steps and processes involved in the use of Google Earth as a community engagement tool for coastal adaptation to climate change.
These workshops are pioneering the collaboration of community groups and local government with sustainability policy, science, technology and governance. The aim is to help facilitate effective policy development, science uptake, community engagement and education to address these complex and important contemporary issues.

An animated explanation of climate change impacts on coasts: storm surge, local flooding, sea level rise.
This video is made from science-based animation and graphics that visualise the interactions among sea level rise, catchment flooding and storm surge. The video shows the likely impacts on coastal communities as climate change continues. The aim is to inform and encourage individuals, groups and policy makers to find out more about adaptive strategies that may be relevant for managing their own piece of coastline.
Dr Bruce Hamilton shares his insights gleaned over many years as an environmental scientist, high level public servant, policy researcher and community activist about obtaining, managing and disseminating information for community and government use in education and effective environmental action.
