Living Geography - Rotherham

Rotherham development plan

Several schools within Rotherham are developing approaches to Living Geography. They are encouraging students to focus on the 'space' in which they live, exploring their own places and what makes them special.

Through engaging learning experiences the students begin to understand the complexities and dilemmas of planning for a sustainable future and explore their own knowledge, values and attitudes. Thought provoking questions open this dialogue...

Where do I live? How does it look? How do I feel about it? How is it changing? What changes might happen where I live? With what impacts? What decisions will be made and with what consequences? Who makes them? What do people think about them? What do I think about them? What future would I like to see? What will happen to my community? How can I get involved? How can I make a positive contribution?


Rotherham Living Geography projects include:

The Rotherham Living Geography group has been supported by the Frederick Soddy Trust.

Rotherham Investment & Development Office (RiDO) gave teachers access to a huge range of photographs, planning documents, artists's impressions, videos, and websites.
