This course will have similarities with the instructor’s past geographical links courses but with a strong emphasis on the environment. Topics will include urbanization, impacts and causes of climate change, keeping fresh water resources clean and sufficient, protecting wildlife habitats and our much loved landscapes, and keeping the oceans healthy. Please note that the instructor is not a scientist; this is not an environmental science course. Geographers look at how environments affect people and how people affect the environment.
LEADER: Helen Goddard is a former geography teacher in the United Kingdom.
