Pathways for Geographers Graduation in TUD
The TUD Pathways to Geographers Challenge was an outreach initiative to promote future careers in combating climate change. TY Geography students were tasked to rethink the future of their locality, survey and analyse the space and its environs and then outline their proposal for remaking the space to be more sustainable that meets the needs of its local community, while maintaining sensitivity to the environment.
Students and Ms Lowe were then invited to attend an awards ceremony in TUD to celebrate their participation in the programme. They received a fabulous walking tour of the brand new campus and treated to panoramic views of the city from the East Quad Roof Terrace before presenting their projects to the judges.
