After a very long journey I’ve woken up in Portland, Oregon. The mountains on landing were stunning and I’m excited to get out and start exploring the city. I’m here to help National Geographic Education train a number of Geography Awareness Week coordinators in how to use the new Mission:Explore website which is coming out this September.
Tomorrow we’re going to be walking 22km across Portland from west to east. In the style of URBAN EARTH, we’ll be taking photo’s every 8 steps and putting together a short film.
On Friday and Saturday over two sessions I’ll be explaining the history of guerrilla geography, Mission:Explore and how this approach to geography education can help to engage young people differently.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
