Celebrate Geography Awareness Week with Beyond!
In this blog post we explore different ways you can celebrate Geography Awareness Week .
Geography Awareness Week is celebrated globally and aims to promote Geography topics and highlight the importance of Geography in our daily lives. From November 13th to 17th each year, this celebration encourages teachers, students, and parents to explore, learn, and engage with the world around us.
You can also subscribe to Beyond Secondary Resources for access to thousands of worksheets and revision tools.

Geography shouldn’t be confined to classrooms! It’s the weather we experience, the different cultures we encounter, and the stunning landscapes around us. Understanding Geography allows us to comprehend complex global issues such as climate change, different migration patterns, resource shortages, and socio-economic problems.
Moreover, Geography fosters appreciation for diverse environments and natural phenomena. It encourages students and teachers alike to embrace the differences that make our surroundings unique. Whether you’re teaching or studying Tectonic Hazards, Map Skills, Weather and Climate, the Water Cycle or River Landscapes, we have a comprehensive range of resources for you to explore covering all KS3 and GCSE topics.
