GEOGRAPHY AWARENESS WEEK
“In 1987 the US Government, with help from the National Geographic Society, declared that the thrid week in November would be Geography Awareness Week. What I like to be able to tell people about Geography is that it’s a way of looking at the world and gaining understanding. And this isn’t just about knowing where countries are. This is about understanding how we exist as a single global community.” —Alex Tait, The National Geographic Society
