This pack for use with 10 to 16-year-olds aims to raise awareness of North-South inequalities. It deals with themes such as environmental interdependence, healthy living, inequality of resource distribution, and trade and debt.

The wide range of activities, such as sequencing, critical thinking, quizzes, discussions, vary in quality; some are good but others leave you needing to know more. For example, "Do not use harmful garden pesticides" is good advice but what should you do instead?

The pack needs a curriculum framework if it is to be more than just a series of interesting activities, but a geography department could use it to enliven existing work schemes.

Keith Grimwade is general adviser for geography for Cambridgeshire
