This blog is for discussion and sharing information about Development Geography in University of Helsinki. There are different sections, one for the Blog, next one for the course Studying Development Geography and for Research.
Development geography offers studies seeking to provide you with the knowledge and skills to engage with many defining social and environmental issues of our time – from global issues such as climate change, migration, and population increase to the local challenges of regional conflicts, forest degradation, and exclusion within Finnish cities.
Development geography makes good use of the problem-oriented, interdisciplinary and multicultural fields of science, with its regional approach. Globalization can be perceived as the mutual interplay of global and local approaches within the methodology of Participatory Learning Approach and Geographic Information System GIS.
