How mountains can impact the future of the planet

November 2021

As part of our ongoing 'Thinking Supper' series, a group of Year 10 students recently visited Radley College for a ‘Geography and Geology’ themed debate on the subject of mountains.

We talked about how mountains are formed, what hazards they create, how they shape economies and impact cultures, and how they are important for the future health of the planet. We had some really interesting discussions about how mountains are vital for the future of the planet because they support many communities, are an essential source of water, and provide habitats for many creatures that keep our ecosystems healthy. 

Overall, this evening was really enjoyable. As well as giving me a broader understanding of mountains, it also helped me to think on my feet and collaborate with peers in a new way.
