We are offering geography fieldwork courses in Malawi in 2016. The former colonial capital of Zomba will form the accommodation base and main working location. Field studies will include the development of an urban land use model for Zomba and an investigation of Zomba town planning and management issues. Visits will include a United Nations Millennium Development Village, a safari lodge in Liwonde National Park, and a local school and orphanage. We will be working with the active support of Zomba City Council, University of Malawi (Chancellor College), and the Responsible Safari Company (based in Blantyre, Malawi).
The course is aimed at A level and GCSE Geography students and their teachers, and those involved in community work and service projects as part of their programme of studies.
School group visits and familiarisation visits for teachers are planned with first UK departure on 23 July 2016.
Crowded Coasts fieldwork options include coping with pressure, increasing risks and coastal management. Rebranding Places field studies cover both urban and rural rebranding strategies and management. Field study updates
