You need to design a poster to encourage new people from around the world to move to your town advertising the benefits of living in "Volcano Ville".
You need to include the possible benefits you have learnt today and to explain each benefit. You could also discuss what has been done to prevent damage to your village should the volcano erupt.
Aim to include:
- Tourism – beautiful scenery, photographers, holidays, geothermal spas.
- Mining – mining for sulphur, gold, diamonds etc.
- Farming – soils are rich and fertile.
- Geothermal Power – sustainable energy, steam is used to turn the turbine which produces energy.
- Diversionary spillways – carry the lava away from the town
- Water pumps – these are available to spray seawater on the lava to cool it and stop its flow
- Volcano monitoring – range of methods used to monitor the volcano and issue an evacuation order if necessary
