Geography studies the Earth’s features and related human activity – it gives an understanding of people and places. Geography helps us understand our own lives in a global world and the vital issues we face such as natural disasters, climatic change, resource dependency, diminishing food supply, human rights and poverty eradication, and environmental protection and sustainability. Field-trips will embed the skills and foundational knowledge of some of the topics studies.
