Session 7: The way forward: “What should we consider when making decisions when there are conflicts of interest?”
- Different backgrounds, common ground
- The way forward: “What should we consider when making decisions when there are conflicts of interest?”
- Whenever any organisation has to make a decision, there will be some who agree and others who disagree. The ability to listen to others in an attempt to understand someone else’s perspective, compromise and patience are all key to resolving conflict.
- Having explored the example of the mining conflict in Odisha, learning is now applied to issues of interest which are local, eg London based (www.london.gov.uk/london-curriculum), and connections are made between this and personal, local, national and global matters.
- Students will consider why there are different views about a local issue
- Students will creatively apply their prior learning to their chosen issue
- Students will relate the content of the module to the aims of the “Miriam’s Vision” resource
- Students will evaluate real issues, considering actions that are likely to be effective
- Students will extrapolate from Miriam’s story to a local situation in the UK.

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
