One such coastal dune system provides an excellent example of how socio-natural sites, like sand dunes, become intertwined with people’s hopes and dreams while being vulnerable to uncontrollable coastal processes. Preserving these coastal dunes was achieved thanks to years of local grassroots campaigns which demonstrate the power of community action to transform lives! However, now facing further threats due to climate change-induced coastal erosion all along their coastline means beaches like Scarborough may move 100 to 200 metres further inland over time than they currently are today!
