What is Worldwise

Worldwise is the banner for the GA's range of student-oriented activities. Worldwise aims to support the engagement of as many school-aged children as possible in geography and also to increase the appreciation of their role in today's World. The GA, through a combination of volunteer effort and support from of our main Worldwise sponsors - Field Studies Council and Ordnance Survey - is able to provide the following fun and engaging, free-of-charge activities aimed at promoting enthusiasm for geography across all age phases:

  • Online quizzes
  • My Places competition
  • Geography Awareness Week
  • Local (face-to face) quizzes
  • Worldwise Challenge weekends

You can find out more about all of the above by clicking on the relevant area of the Worldwise home page.
