PNGfullreport

Papua New Guinea: health and human well-being is an engaging and easy to use resource that supports the Australian curriculum: Geography – especially Global geographies of human well-being.

It includes five video chapters with related texts to facilitate an enquiry approach to development geography. In small groups, students are invited to work for a non-government organisation, conduct research and submit a proposal addressing health issues in Papua New Guinea.

It directly addresses the two cross-curriculum perspectives, Sustainability and Australia’s engagement with Asia and the general capabilities: ethical behaviour, intercultural understanding, critical and creative thinking.
