We all have experiences in our lives that change our mentality and perspective - for better or worse. Some of these experiences even change who we are. Next month (June 2019), as part of this year's Norwich-Dedza Partnership exchange teachers from Malawi will be visiting the UK. So in celebration and preparation for that, I will be re-blogging the thoughts I made during my visit to Malawi in 2013.

Without delving too much into politics, it is of this geographer's opinion that current affairs demonstrate how crucial the current need is for critical thinking.

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. Some will be nursery rhymes, some short prose, but all will have the same moral: Geography is awesome, inspiring and often life changing. Do you have a such a story to share? Find out more and get in contact.
