Our world is more interconnected than ever before, yet even as the global community becomes increasingly more complex and competitive; the world is changing at a rapid pace. Did you know that the world is likely to change more in the next 50 years than ever before?
Geography helps students understand the world around them, and how it will change, enabling them to prepare for the future. Geography involves multiple disciplines such as science, climate, world affairs, and encourages flexible thinking.
