The first climate refugees of Europe
The village of Skipsea, in UK, is risking to disappear fast and falling into the sea. It sits on the Yorkshire’s East Riding, the fastest-eroding coastline in Europe and every year the sea swallows another chunk of land. Official figures estimate that this coastline loses an average of 18 inches a year. The council estimates that 13 homes in the village will disappear in the next five years, with a further 78 likely to be lost by 2058. Some of the residentes are leaving, others decided to stay there until the end.
