GEOcube - we need your help
HERODOT TP2 members are aiming to create a Web site which defines what Geography is and what Geographers do. We are asking HERODOT members to define some of the proposed 54 themes for us and then to translate the resultant text into their language. The aim is to produce a resource in all European languages which can be used to promote the study of Geography in school and in higher education. See the template and list of themes. Contact Maria Attard if you would like to be involved in this initiative. You can also visit the TP2 HERODOT community forum on promoting Geography.
