Has a new era of ‘de-globalisation’ begun, and what are the implications for teaching and learning about global flows?
Three years ago, the ‘Global systems and global governance’ topic was introduced to A Level geography. Much has changed in the world since then: this event reflects on current affairs and new opportunities for A Level curriculum-making around this topic.
Specialised/key geographic concepts underpin the defining political issues and debates of our times. They include interdependence, inequality, injustice and identity. This event will also focus on how these ideas can be used to demonstrate the vital importance of geography to GCSE students considering possible A Level options.
