Geography for Life
Why is the study of geography important?
  • "Geography is for life in every sense of that expression: lifelong, life-sustaining, and life-enhancing. Geography is a field of study that enables us to find answers to questions about the world around us--about where things are and how and why they got there."
  • "Geography focuses attention on exciting and interesting things, on fascinating people and places, on things worth knowing because they are absorbing and because knowing about them lets humans make better-informed and, therefore, wiser decision."
  • "With a strong grasp of geography, people are better equipped to solve issues at not only the local level but also the global level."
