GEOGRAPHY

Geography is about understanding the earth and our place within it.

WHAT IS GEOGRAPHY?

GCSE Geography is about understanding the earth and our place within it. It examines how places and countries differ, how natural and human environments interact, and it explores the connections between places, resources, people and development. Geography examines why some places develop, while others remain in a state of instability, why some places are inflicted by catastrophic disasters while others not, and how the physical world can have such a dramatic influence on our daily lives.
