After the success of the "Living Geography" events in London, York and Wrexham, a new set of dates have been released for next year.
Unpacking the first batch of Journey Journals....
“Anything that encourages us to ‘open our eyes’, appreciate distance, difference and diversity, and the possibility of a different viewpoint is good news. Like all the best ideas the Journey Journal is simple and straightforward. I am sure children of all ages will enjoy this and gain a lot from it”.
Professor David Lambert
"The ideal document for all aspiring geographers to keep alongside their passport."
Dr. Nick Middleton, Geographer, writer and TV Presenter
Available to order shortly from the GEOGRAPHY COLLECTIVE ONLINE SHOP.

Spent some time yesterday with Dan Ellison pinging e-mails backwards and forwards with the rather wonderful designers at Can of Worms putting the final touches to the Journey Journal before it went off to the presses for the first print run of 3000 books.
Journey Journal is a rather wonderful book for upper secondary / lower secondary age pupils.
