    I'm doing an EPQ this year albeit not on geopgraphy but I found my topic by going on a Wikipedia spree being perfectly honest! I started with one page on something I was interested in and then clicked links to other articles and it gave me a lot of inspiration.

    Go on a news or geography website and see if there's any news stories that interest you and can do research on.

    The big things to keep in mind is that your topic can only have very slight overlap with your courses. It's fine if what you choose is like one page of a textbook but if it's an entire section of it then you're gonna be in a bit of trouble. The question (or statement in some cases) that you choose must be evaluative not descriptive. You have to be able to weigh up arguments or evidence and come to a conclusion, not just describe an issue.

    Hope I've helped!
