Many places, which most of us have not heard much about before, are now headline news. Geography is destiny, and if history gives you insight into what is happening, geography is often the ‘why’.
A global outlook is vital for our young people like never before. A growing number of our learners will one day live and work abroad, but more than that, our everyday lives are now very much global where events in far off lands can impact all of us like never before, and to truly understand today’s geo-politics, the ‘geo’ needs to be understood.
