Geography

Geography encompasses the world all around us. It bridges the gap between the physical and human environments. Geography helps us understand;

  • The places where we work and live,
  • The different choices that are available to manage our future world,
  • Why and how the world is changing both on a local, national and global scale,
  • How society’s and individual’s choices contribute to these changes,
  • How the world and its communities are interconnected.
