Geography: Responding To Environmental & Societal Challenges: Geographical Perspectives With Dr Martin Mahony & Dr Amii Harwood From University Of East Anglia
April 24 @ 13:00 - 13:45
We need geographers and environmental scientists to help us deal with major environmental and societal challenges. We need people to research the problems, understand the threats, evaluate the options and translate the science to policy makers.
We’ll provide an insight to studying and researching geography at university, through our own experiences at the front line.
The talk will link to the following A Level and equivalent qualification topics:
- Science, policy and society;
- Politics of Climate Change;
- Geographical Information Systems (GIS);
- Natural Hazards; Ecosystem Services
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students studying geography, and/or thinking about studying BSc Geography or BA Geography and/or studying physics/ chemistry/ biology and/or thinking about studying environmental sciences.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students are encouraged to consider and discuss some of the relevant issues and possible questions they may have about going on to study at university. It is also worth making students aware that it will be interactive and they will have the chance to ask and respond to questions.
The IT Setup: The IT setup will be different depending on whether schools are open or closed as a result of COVID-19 and therefore whether students will access the session at home or at school. We will update this section nearer the time when we have a clearer idea.
Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. Please do express interest here
We will contact you nearer the time with further details about how to connect in to the session.
