The challenges facing our world are growing increasingly complex. And while technological advances offer solutions, they often cause disruption and disconnections. Now, more than ever, students’ need to understand the importance of human and physical geography – how people interact with the environment and each other. Cultivating global awareness among these digital-savvy learners can help them become “Generation Geography,” a community of socially conscious and informed changemakers striving to achieve a planet in balance.
