Geography

“So many of the world's current issues – at a global scale and locally - boil down to geography, and need the geographers of the future to help us understand them. Global warming as it affects countries and regions, food and energy security, the degradation of land and soils from over-use and misuse, the spread of disease, the causes and consequences of migration, and the impacts of economic change on places and communities.”                        Michael Palin (RGS-IBG Immediate Past President) 2011
The study of geography stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places.  It helps young people make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world.  It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on students own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global.
 
Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people's lives, now and in the future.  Fieldwork is an essential element of this. Students learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information. Geography inspires students to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.
