“Geography is a living and breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change, it is dynamic and relevant” - Michael Palin
This course builds on the skills and concepts learned in Level 1. New Zealand is a unique and diverse landscape due to its geographic location in a tectonically active area. We take a field trip to Tongariro Volcanic Zone to undertake research and understand the alpine environment and maintaining its natural character. We also look at the cultural environment, looking into global patterns and urban patterns.
