Students on our Geography, the Earth and environment courses regularly get out in the field, both locally and further afield. Trips so far this academic year have included:
- Our Exploring Brighton trips to introduce new students to our wonderful city. This included Stanmer Park and a guided tour around community projects and the Earthship eco-home
- Trips to the Pleistocene Thames and Medway sites of Swanscombe, Baker’s Hole and Cuxton
- Introducing the politics of ‘heritage’ and struggles over the meanings and use of space with a visit Hastings and St Leonards just along the Sussex coast
- Fieldwork on the coast at Pett Level, Hastings, examining and reconstructing sedimentary environments of deposition as far back as ~140 Ma ago – to a time of the Baryonyx dinosaur
- A visit to Shoreham Port to speak to their sustainability team about small-scale wind power, on-site green hydrogen, butterfly conservation and making sustainability meaningful in commercial/industrial environments.
