Global change and future geographies in teaching

One day before the Annual meeting of the Finnish Geographers (October 24th, 2018), a special workshop for teachers is organized at Think Lounge (2nd floor) in Think Corner (Yliopistonkatu 4, Helsinki). The workshop will introduce contemporary perspectives to global change studies and geographical research (e.g. climate change, cultural and economic globalization, and citizen participation). The event is targeted especially to high school teachers, but also researchers, doctoral students and others are warmly welcome to participate. The event has room for max 50 people. 

Detailed program of the workshop and a separate registration form for the event will be updated to this page later.

The workshops are held at the Kumpula campus (Gustaf Hällströminkatu 2, Helsinki) by department staff, invited keynote speakers and external trainers. The schedule and more information will be announced later.

The Workshop Day has room for 50 people. Signing up for the day is done while registering for the Annual Meeting of Finnish Geographers. We ask that you also inform us of your order of preference for the workshops. The most popular workshops might not have room for everybody.
