Introduction to the subject:

The study of geography is about more than memorizing places on a map. It is about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. In the end it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together. Our world that we live in will continue to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever has done before. Geography explains these changes, Geography; explains the past, illuminates the present, and prepares us for our future. What could be more important than that?
