Geography trip to London

Thirty-four IB HL Geography students enjoyed a geographical enquiry led visit to East London – specifically contrasting market led regeneration in Canary Wharf and Sport led regeneration in The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and learning about Sustainable Urban Systems.

Topics covered on the day included infrastructure improvements over time (transport, sanitation, water, waste disposal and telecommunications); the causes of deindustrialisation and its economic, social and demographic consequences; contested land use change: urban redevelopment (affected neighbourhood and changing population); building sustainable urban systems for the future: resilient city design including strategies to manage escalating climatic and geopolitical risks to urban areas, eco-city design including strategies to manage the urban ecological footprint and smart city design - the use of new technology to run city services and systems, including purpose-built settlements and retrofitting technology to older settlements.
