We are living in unprecedented times, and there has never been a more important moment for graduates to understand the complex challenges hazard management presents. In their third year, our Geography and Environment students have the chance to take a module focussed on living with hazard and risk. They learn about Disaster Risk Reduction, inequity and vulnerability, and a range of environmental hazards- from volcanoes to severe storms.

As part of this module, the students are tasked to write a book chapter, and also to take part in a peer review process, providing feedback on the work of two of their peers and reflecting on and incorporating formative feedback on their own work.

The book is now online*, and the 2023 edition can be read here (with previous volumes available here). The finished chapters within the volume represent many hours of studentship, and participation in seminars, workshops, and group debates. A massive well done to all our graduating third years- we are really proud of what you have achieved!
