Case studies of a changing world pathway - The infamous Eyjafjallajökull: 10 years on
When the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted on 20 March 2010, thousands of people, including many students and teachers, were stranded over the Easter holidays as European airspace closed and the fragilities of an ever-globalised world were exposed. Ten years on, we reflect on how this small volcanic event had such a significant impact both nationally and globally.

Geography for sustainability pathway - The end of the great acceleration - why it's good for the planet, the economy and our lives
Fertility rates, growth in GDP per person, increases in life expectancy and even the frequency of new social movements have all steadily declined over the last few generations, with the latest data from the most remote places now confirming that slowdown in upon us. Why not embrace the current slowdown as a moment of promise and a move towards stability?
