Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

I had the opportunity to visit the Solar Decathlon in Denver 2017. I put together this resource to match the part of most GCSE Geography syllabuses that focus on urban growth and sustainability. Some slides are region-based (east of England) and for the AQA syllabus, but the main learning objectives are very relevant for a range of scales and locations. This powerpoint can be used front-facing; as an independent learning resource or flipped homework task. I strongly recommend you search for and browse the official website, it is very informative! ***I am on sabbatical for the 2017-18 academic year. Please check out my sabbatical blog at http://geogramblings.wordpress.com, documenting my experiences in a way that provides useful insights and resources for teachers!***
