WINNERS OF THE 2009 ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY (WITH IBG) ‘GO BEYOND’ BURSARY
 
   
 
Atlantic Rising is a charity that embarked on a 28,000 mile journey around the Atlantic Ocean. We travelled overland along the 1metre contour line - the level scientists predict sea levels may reach by the year 2100.

Along the way we gathered a huge amount of material - photographs, interviews, short films, soundscapes - which we have now transformed into an educational project for 12-15 year olds.

 
We hope teachers find the educational resources useful; that travellers get inspiration from our expedition; and that our writings and photographs can provoke thoughts about our changing relationship with the natural world.

We don't claim to have all the solutions to stop sea levels from rising.  But we hope our work will help the next generation understand their responsibility to each other to build a sustainable future.

Explore @ The RGS - 18th November

 
Atlantic Rising gave the opening lecture at the Royal Geographical Society's Explore weekend on 18th November 2011.

It was great to see so many friends there. And even some people we met along the road. There will be more opportunites to hear us speak if you missed it.

 

Where is Bernie the Buoy?

 
After the success of the first bottle, we launched a second bottle as we crossed from America to England in December 2010.

Since then the bottle floated over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic, but in in July 2011 the tracker battery ran out.  Bernie still floats.  But he has gone off the radar.
