Global Challenges.

World at risk takes a close look at geophysical and hydro-meteorological hazards around the world and how people cope with them. It also delves more deeply into global warming and climate change with an attempt to look into the future and what it holds for the human race.

Going global looks closely at the phenomenon of globalisation and how it impacts on various countries and different people. Population issues are also explored, with a focus on migration and the growth of mega-cities.  

Geographical investigations.

Inequality is the first of two investigations. We visit fifteen areas of Bristol and a selection of settlements around East Devon looking at how environments and people’s lives differ. We attempt to explore the concepts of absolute and relative poverty and arrive at a more reasoned understanding of what inequality is.

 Crowded coasts explores the pressure that coastlines are under and how different areas cope with that pressure. It involves a visit to the South Devon coastline and an assessment of how we protect our local coastal area. 

Contested planet.

Global security is investigated extensively looking particularly at energy security, water conflicts and super-power geography. Global threats to biodiversity is also looked at focussing on mangroves and forests. Global development and how to bridge the development gap is investigated focussing on technology as a ‘fix’ for poverty.

Geographical research.

Students embark upon a guided research unit about tectonic hazards and how countries at different levels of development cope with them.
