Celebrating real-life geography success stories: a call

I will be giving a presentation at the Geographical Association 2019 conference (April, Manchester), of a collection of real-life stories celebrating the positive impact Geography has on lives, attitudes and experiences. Each will be told in that feel-good way of children’s story time.

The once-every-4-years hysteria is here again. Whether you love the 'beautiful game' or loathe it, what is undeniable is that the FIFA World Cup can provide a boon of teaching opportunities. Featuring @FiveThirtyEight, @CONIFAOfficial

Kit, BSc Environmental Sciences and PGCE (Geography) secondary years graduate: “I now no longer have enough fingers on both hands to count the number of times that going to UEA influenced my life”

Those who know me well are aware that I have fond feelings for my old university. When given the opportunity to emote why on their alumni ‘UEA Stories’ blog, I jumped at the chance!

I knew that going to university was going to change my life, but what I never considered what how much it was going to be life-changing. That is, I now no longer have enough fingers on both hands to count the number of times that going to UEA influenced my life, while studying and since graduating. That single decision, to accept a conditional offer to study Environmental Sciences, starting September 2001 was the proverbial stone setting off ripples across the pond.
Steve-quote-1If I skip forward to today, the effect of those ripples have been profound: leading to marriage and two young children, a successful career, networks that stretch across the world and a transferable skillset that keeps me on my toes, continuing to give options going forward.
