Blog of blogs 2017

2017 has been a busy year here at the School of Geography, and to round up the year and give you an idea of what we do, we have put together a collection of blogs relating to research from the School, which we hope you will enjoy.

We would also like to wish you a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year from all the staff in the School of Geography.

With habitat destruction, biodiversity loss, climate change and poverty increasingly seen as moral issues, there is real potential for faith-based organisations to contribute to a sustainable future.
