Written by Bethan Evans

Play and Recreation, Health and Wellbeing Synopsis

Geographies of children and young people is a rapidly emerging sub-discipline within human geography. There is now a critical mass of established academic work, key names within academia, growing numbers of graduate students and expanding numbers of university level taught courses. There are also professional training programmes at national scales and in international contexts that work specifically with children and young people.

The volumes and sections are structured by themes, which then reflect the broader geographical locations of the research.
