Short Story Contest on the Future of the Coastline

Short Story Contest on the Future of the Coastline

Your story

The world’s coastlines are facing a number of challenges, including climate change, rising sea levels, and coastal erosion. These challenges are having a significant impact on coastal communities, ecosystems, and economies.

In this call, we invited students to imagine coastal regions that have undergone profound transformation following a significant event in the 2070s, as documented in a newspaper article published 50 years later. Society has adeptly adapted to these shifts, giving rise to a novel societal structure. It is within this evolved coastal society that we encouraged the students to craft a short story. Four distinct scenarios were presented from which the students could select one or two as their narrative’s foundation.
