08 June 2016

Year 12 Geographers took part in a short urban field trip on Wednesday to investigate social, economic and environmental changes in the Xintiandi area of Shanghai.

Ahead of their Geography field trip in Phnom Penh in the coming weeks, our Geographers worked in groups to practise some of the field work techniques they will be undertaking in Phnom Penh; and also took the opportunity to see place based examples from aspects of the urban environments topic they have been studying this term. 

Although the field trip was brief, students collaborated very well and engaged with the local community by interviewing and completing a range of surveys. 

The students found that there are vast disparities in economic, social and environmental aspects of urban life, even within the same neighbourhood; a growing global pattern in our megacities of the world.
