RHUL Geography Taster Day 6th July: Global challenges in a changing world

This event will be held online and feature video lectures from members of the Geography department covering themes including:

Climate Change, Glaciers, Political and Development Geography, The Geohumanities

In addition, the taster day will be built around a student video competition Geography research video challenge: “How can geography address a major issue facing society?” students to work in teams to produce short (5min) research video to address this question they can choose the issue or the scale from local to global

Themes can be from across geography but some suggestions include: Climate change, tectonics, arid environments, glaciers, debt, trade, urbanisation, global health, resilience and impacts.

The presentations will be shown online as part of the virtual taster day but will be submitted late June to allow a judging panel to comment on them and award prizes.

We will be supporting the competition and taster day with the addition of online resources.
