Geography & the Global Dimension

Geography & the Global Dimension

Geography & the Global Dimension Based on the work of a threeyear project, this workshop will offer practical ideas for teaching geography and the global dimension, and will suggest ways to promote learning through the use of Living Geography, story and more. Wendy North, Helen Griffin Zoe Silverwood, John Waller, Gemma Eden GA Conference, Manchester April 2012

Geography underpins a lifelong conversation about the earth as the home of humankind. Geography deepens understanding: many contemporary challenges climate change, food security, energy choices cannot be understood without a geographical perspective. Geography ... is fundamental for everyone. It starts very early, when a young child encounters and begins to discover the world. Geography can nourish and enrich a whole lifetime of learning. Geography: a curriculum resource par excellence GA MANIFESTO
