Geography is one of the most under-taught subjects in schools, but in an increasingly global-minded world, it is one of the most crucial topics for us to understand. The study of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants informs just about everything we do every day. Geography is more than just place names and outline maps. It's understanding how the world around us works!
