On Wednesday 27 September, A Level students attended a thought-provoking and inspiring lecture by Professor Danny Dorling on the Geographies of Inequalities.
Professor Dorling is a celebrated author and lecturer who showed us how Britain in the 1980s was the second most equal country in Europe but today is a very different and far more unequal country. This inequality is not good for our health, diets, our environment but is also an incredibly expensive society to fund. The good news is that possibly, as turbulent as the Brexit decision might become, it might be the something revolutionary that our country needs to address these inequalities.
Professor Dorling explained why Geography is so highly regarded at Universities and geographers are already being looked to for answers to the biggest questions of our time – Climate Change and Inequality.
