This interactive map shows sites of conflict related to airports and aviation around the world.
Students can also use the map to explore CO2 emissions from aviation by country (and per-capita, tourism-adjusted data), observe where all major and mid-size airports are located around the world, and explore countries' vulnerability to climate disruptions.
Students can explore the details of conflicts happening all over the world related to airports and aviation by clicking on the location.
After clicking on a location, students can click "see more" and then select from seven orange language icons in the sidebar to view the entire site in translation.
Students should know how to read a map.
Students must de-select options in the legend to see other options if they are listed below the previously selection option.
Students could choose a site and do research to find more updated information on the conflict.
In social studies or civics classes, students could discuss what purposes maps like this one could serve in slowing airport-related climate change problems.
This resource is suitable for providing insights on airport-related conflicts as a result of land degradation. The resource is recommended for teaching.
