Why is Geography important?
Geography helps us to make sense of the world around us, better understand the places we live in, learn about and visit, why they matter and how they are connected to a globalised world.
Through geography, we encounter different societies and cultures and learn to appreciate the incredible diversity of landscapes and peoples.
In geography, we face questions of what it means to live sustainably in an interdependent world and learn to value and care for the planet and all its inhabitants.
