Ethical understanding

In Geography, students develop ethical understanding as they investigate current geographical issues. As students develop their understanding of the concepts of sustainability and social justice, they consider the ethical implications of human behaviour on societies now and for future generations. Through asking ethical questions about human rights and citizenship, students develop informed values and attitudes and become aware of their own roles and responsibilities as citizens of the Earth. When undertaking fieldwork, students consider ethical protocols for investigating and working with people and preserving places and environments.
