Why study Geography and Environmental Management?

There has never been a more urgent need to study the environment.

  • As concern grows about the loss of biodiversity and ecosystems, we need more professionals to get to the heart of these issues facing humans and our natural world. 
  • Human impact is having a devastating effect on the environment. Environmental managers explore the world around us to assess how the needs of society can be balanced with ensuring a sustainable environment. 

  • River management is important to addressing the impact of climate change such as flooding and ecosystem imbalance. Geographers work on sustainable river restoration and natural flood management to help reduce these effects.
