The Geography Department at the Nelson Mandela School 

Geographical and geoscientific phenomena and processes such as globalisation, climate change, flood disasters, migration or resource conflicts are increasingly shaping our lives on earth.

Through the interaction of natural geographic conditions and human activities, these processes acquire a special dynamic and pose challenges that require responsible and sustainable action.

The subject of geography has the special potential to create a link between natural science and social science education. Natural science helps to understand natural processes. The social science aspect enables the classification of social, political and economic events, structures and processes.

The aim of geography lessons at the Nelson Mandela School is, therefore, to recognise the interactions of nature and society in selected spatial examples, to understand structures, processes and problems and to think of sustainable solutions to problems. Geography lessons combine both thematic and regional geographic approaches. Clarity and topicality play a decisive role in this, which are taken up by teaching examples from the students' living environment or current case studies from the media. The use of modern media in lessons increases the attractiveness of the subject. Excursions and visits to extracurricular places of learning make the lessons particularly true to life and make it possible to link theory and practice, to act independently and to bring in one's own experiences and adventures.
