"There are so many reason why geography is important, especially in the modern - and rapidly changing - world we live in.  Understanding the factors that govern the world, be it your local community or globally, means you will be better prepared for the future. The world is an AMAZING place and one that is now within everyone's grasp to explore, enjoy and improve.

Geography- A subject for those with an enquiring mind

 

The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before. The rise of China and India, Global Warming, Globalisation, Desertification in Africa, the population bomb and the struggle for resources, it is vital that students understand the world into which they will grow up. Geography explains how and why the world is so interesting and what problems and changes are likely to occur.
