As my name appears, I'm among the members who got to attend the GA conference of 2009 held in Manchester. I appreciate the programs given by the GA to help activating the Geography Subject in schools. All these are to secure our Origin Planet from disappearance since we know that Geography is the only Solution. Immediately after the Conference I decided to join the higher education in my country Tanzania in order to boost up my Education. This is due to challenges I faced during the conference. I hope one day I will be among the RESCUER( campaigner) in this world. I wish All the Best for those who will attend this year's Conference. GA SURVIVE FOR EVER

Hi. I am greatful to the GA for having granted me the opportunity to attend this years conference. I am a teacher of geography all the way from Mombasa-Kenya. Am very hopeful that the conference will enable me and other members who will attend to share and exchange ideas on matters pertaining geography as a whole. Especially understanding the pedagogical differences on geography teaching in my country Kenya vis a vis other member countries. Am longing for this day and how I wish it was tommorrow .
