Mission Explore was featured in The Guardian G2 kids section yesterday, 5 August under the headline How to be an Explorer. And they are asking any of you kids out there to send photos in from your adventures to email@example.com – so get out there and show them what guerilla geography is all about.
“it may just be the most revolutionary geography-related book ever published” Geographical Magazine August 2010
We certainly believed in the groundbreaking and ‘revolutionary’ Mission:Explore book which Can of Worms published this April 1st. But it wonderful to receive such an endorsement for the great work of The Geography Collective and Tom Morgan-Jones’s humourous illustrations. And if you haven’t got a copy yet, you can order by clicking here: Mission:Explore or through your local bookstore on online retailer.
The wonderfully inventive and incorrigibly curious crew at The Geography Collective have launched a new blog to track stories in the media about risk aversion. Our recently published book: Mission:Explore, written by The Geography Collective and illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones is the purest antidote known to man*(kind) and beast for the cotton wool culture that our children are being enveloped in.
Do please go and take a look at their blog: http://thegeographycollective.wordpress.com/ as well as the book, and please tell your friends.
* for man please also read woman, boy, girl, child, etc. etc
“For all our sakes we need more children falling off branches, getting lost in forests and getting stuck inside trees. The message is simple; it is more risky not to go into the woods. It is dangerous for not only the health of the individual but the world.
Recently the media has been wrapped up in a blanket of stories about cotton-wool kids.”
This was the beginning of a fascinating blog post on the Stanfords Bookstore website, written by Daniel Raven-Ellison of The Geography Collective. You can read the entire blog here: http://www.stanfords.co.uk/articles/blog/the-geography-collective-get-lost-kids,229,AR.html
