This title draws together well-respected contributors to look forward to the future of geography education and explore key questions in the field. "Geography, Education and the Future" considers the future of both geography and geography education by exploring the following questions: How can geography education prepare young people for the places, environments and societies they will inhabit in the future? How should geography be reframed to take into account the major social and environmental changes wrought by growing consumption, restructuring of economies and technologies, and the dynamic connections between local and global? How can geography and geography education present an agenda that can be taken seriously and implemented in the twenty first century? A range of geographical themes are considered through four sections: children, young people and geography; place, space and change; mediating forms of geographical knowledge; and, global ethics, environment and citizenship. Each section concludes with a discussant critically summarising the content.
