Geografie dětí: metodické přístupy a inspirace nejen pro geografy

Daniel Kaplan

Children’s geography, a rapidly developing subdiscipline of geography, paradoxically remains overlooked by the broader scientific geographical community. Despite its recognition in the Anglophone world, it lacks interest in other cultural-geographical regions. This article aims to introduce the Czech and Slovak scientific community to children’s geography and demonstrate how this discipline can serve as inspiration for traditional geographic fields. One of the main focuses is on innovative methodologies and ethical considerations that permeate each study, particularly regarding minority groups. This contribution seeks to integrate children’s geography into the mainstream of geographical research in both Czechia and Slovakia. The article presents the development of children’s geography, its key ideas, and arguments that may enrich Czech and Slovak geography. It emphasizes its potential in exploring spatial aspects of childhood and society, leading to a better understanding of these issues. Emphasizing research ethics leads to a beneficial approach, enabling us to better respond to the needs and interests of children.
