We’re excited to let you know that our latest film, Living on the Edge – looking at how sea level rise and coastal erosion are affecting Cornwall’s seaside communities – is now available to watch online.
This eye-opening 30-min documentary is presented by passionate ultra runner Emma Hazeldine, who takes us on a journey around the Cornish coast path, visiting places that are already being impacted – and responding in different ways to the challenges that lie ahead.
Just a few of the stories covered in the film include:
- The escalating cost of maintaining the South West coast path, which is hugely important to Cornwall’s economy, attracting 2.5 million visitors to the county each year
- A community’s efforts to save a much-loved historic building by moving it brick by brick 100m away from a cliff edge
- Plans to protect the low-lying towns of Mounts Bay with 1.3 million tonnes of sand
- One town’s victory in efforts to stop developments from being built on the edge of its crumbling cliffs
The film was premiered recently at the Cornwall Film Festival. You can watch the Q&A that followed this first preview screening, with some of the experts from our three films – click here
Living on the Edge is the third film in the Cornwall’s Climate Stories series. You can see the previous films on our website.
