'Population Puzzles of the future' in Year 8 Geography.....

Are we going to have more or less farmland in the future?

Where will we house the anticipated growth of our population to 8 billion people by 2024? These are questions that Year 8 looked into this week in their first Geography lessons of 2020. It was back to basics as they learnt how to use distribution of population as a concept in Population Geography, their new topic for Term 2.

How our natural world shapes where people live is a fundamental skill in analysing settlement and demographic change on Earth. How will it change with ever increasing arid areas? Wetter coastlines? Stronger hurricanes? Will it force people up-slope, a commonly avoided area for settlement growth? Will it cause us to build onto and reclaim land from the sea, such as the Japanese are mastering? These are all questions our budding young Geographers faced this week, as they succeeded in explaining the links between the physical world and the human world, a key Geographical skill.

Geographers never stop thinking about their world - so watch this space and their notebooks for some answers to these globally critical questions!

Best wishes for 2020 from the Geography Department.
