Renaming Iceland

I've spent a lot of time over the last few months working on the pupil and teacher resources for our ICELAND packs that the Geography Collective are creating for Discover the World.
This has involved John Sayers, who was able to spend a week in Iceland exploring the locations which are part of the tours, Helen Steer who has been designing and laying out the pages, and Tom Morgan Jones, who has been contributing the illustrations as always.

Watch out for the latest Discover the World newsletter which provides more information as well as some teaser missions....

Something else that I learned from my research.
A kilowatt hour of electricity costs around 2p in Iceland.
Compare that with what you are paying...

There has been a recent campaign run by Inspired by Iceland to come up with a new name for Iceland, based on your views or experiences of the country.

You can make your own poster with an image of your own chosen name.
Go to the website here to make your own...

Here's one that I made:

If you have an Android phone you can also install the Inspired by Iceland app...

Bear in mind that this is only a competition - Iceland isn't actually changing its name...
