Mr A Gibson

Questions about sustainable development always feature among the most poorly answered questions by GCSE students. It is interpreting the "sustainability" part within the question that causes problems. Use this mind map as a good reference point to give you the information you need to make sure you do not fall into this trap. Add some of your own info to it too - make it yours!

the mindmap would be more helpful and memorable if it used a colour-coding technique as linking topics/issues and colours helps as i am a visual learner
