But they do still offer a good insight in Nepal, and considering we couldn't exactly go there on a fieldtrip, it is all we really have to rely on! Anyway, I hope this was helpful, let me know what you think about this, and if you have any more requests Management of tourism in Lakshadweep - lessons to be learnt for Nepal???
Attempts to regulate tourism in Nepal are quite limited mainly to Sherpas and paying tourists back deposits for returning with rubbish and subsequently the environment has started to suffer. However there are other regions of the world that have started to successfully manage their tourim Lakshadweep is a tropical island system, with environmental sustainability at the heart of its development.
The heritage of ecology and culture is supported by an extremely fragile ecosystem, as with in the Himalayas. However Lakshadweep are committed to the cause of eco-tourism, following a middle path between tourism promotion and environmental conservation. The impacts of tourism on the environment is carefully monitored, ensuring that promotion of tourism is consistent with ecological concerns.
It seems that an effective strategy has been implemented to avoid excess pressure on the environment, meaning that tourism does not exceed the carrying capacity of the islands. Well I think it is safe to say that that exam wasn't much fun at all bit of a disaster in my case to be honest!
However, some, like me, can't get too excited yet as we still have 4B to do. Therefore over the weekend, I am going to try and write some 4B stuff up on here, so stay tuned, remember though that all the skills have already been covered back in January so I am not intending to go over this again, just click on the Geographical Skills tab to go straight there What better place to start than with the issue People are concerned about damage to the fragile environment and ecosystems because of tourism which has arisen because of the need to develop but might be resolved by appropriate technology and sustainable energy sources.
Mount Everest and K2 are located here as well as the Tibetan Plateau to the northwest. They are situated north of the equator and influence monsoon patterns. They are a fragile environment with 15, glaciers, even though they are close to the tropics, indicating the influence of altitude on climate. There are 6 parallel climate zones within the Himalayas mountain range which can be identified by their altitude, and therefore the vegetation that grows. However, fragility of the ecosystems increases with altitude.
Summary of 4B Nepal AIB Well that is a brief summary, hopefully I will find the time at the weekend to write up some more details before the exam on Tuesday but let me know if there is anything you would like me to focus on Tuesday, 12 June Monsoons. Hello everyone!!! This is a rather late request from quite a few people so I thought I would quickly write it - last minute cramming always helps right Movement of the ITCZ - moves with regards to season as point of maximum insolation changes due to the Differential heating of land and sea which initiates pressure differences - land masses heat and cool quicker and to more extremes in relation to smaller heat changes over nearby seas; these differences are responsible for strength and direction of winds 3.
This is by no means a definite or complete list of case studies for the development and globalisation module but is a few facts from some different countries - there is plenty more that I could and probably should! However, hopefully it may still be useful - the countries are in no particular order Let me know if you have found any other interesting case study facts!
Case studies are by no means my favourite thing to revise, so if anyone has found a more interesting way to do so then let me know, I know I am not the only one who would love to hear it! The timeline of the FB page is really good, especially for the tectonics module I think, so check it out if you are struggling with your case studies!!!
I have had lots and lots of requests for this one!!! I am going to try and explain it as best as possible but just shout if there is something I havent done so well - some of this climate stuff gets quite tricky so if you are struggling it is probably best to go to a workshop or ask on the FB page rather than just rely on what I am about to write, although I am hoping this is will stilll be useful! Depressions form when two air masses with differing characteristics meet. Above the UK this is usually polar maritime PM air and tropical maritime TM air, which is seperated by the polar front.
Warmer, lighter TM air rises, because, being warmer it has a lower atmospheric pressure so is less dense. As it is warmer, it also carries more moisture than the cooler polar air mass and, as it rises, it cools and condenses and produces water droplets and consequently clouds. This is the embryonic stage and the depression moves in a north easterly direction, under the influence of the Polar Jet, whilst Coriolis establishes the anti-clockwise circulation that permits more Tm air to protrude into the depression.
As the depression matures, warm air rises over colver air to the east so lower pressure is created, with adiabatic cooling of air. This adiabatic cooling forms high altititude clouds, followed by lower cirrostratus, altostratus and nimbostratus from which heavy precipitation for a long period of time occurs. Where Tm air remains in contact with the ground, indicating no forced ascent, skies remian clear and cloudless but the faster moving cold front, where strongest winds are generated, force cumulonimbus clouds that prodcude heavy precipitation.
Once all the Tm air has been 'forced' off the gournd and the two fronts have caught-up with each other, occlusion occurs. This is marked by a decrease in cloud cover and wind speeds, after a period of steady light precipitation, and an increase in pressue which signifies the decay of a depression.
This is quite a good animation if you are a more visual learner. When Tm touches the ground you get nice warm ish! In complete contrast at the cold front where winds are strongest you get cumulonimbus clouds forms which bring the heaviest rainfall. During occlusion as high pressure starts to be created and moisture leaves, you get steady light precipiation and winds.
The basic idea is that weather changes as a depression travels over an area and matures! We also have to be able to find the three distinct stages on a synoptic chart - have a go with this one! The very unscientific way I remember it is that:. This is not an easy topic, but hopefully this helps - lets just hope that it does not feature too much in the exam!!!
A few brief TNC case studies Hello everyone - I hope the revision is going well; not long left now!!! Now, I realise that everyone, in my class atleast, did a different TNC case study as a research class, on top of the notes we made on Wal-Mart after watching that documentary , but a few people have asked me to write about a couple of notes on some TNCs - as well as Wal-Mart I have chosen Rio Tinto that is the one my group did and Unilever as that one is in the booklet I hope this is helpful!
Wednesday, 23 May Jet Streams. First up, good luck to all students sitting the Geography exam tomorrow! Now, I have been refraining from writing any climate stuff for a while now but I thought I had better start sometime pretty soon! A while ago Millie covered the basics very well in one post so I will skip that bit if you want me to go over it again, just let me know! So tonight I am going to start with Jet Streams; before going on to the joys of depressions!
As with any moving substance it is deflected by the good old Coriolis Force so they move from west to east. However, their path is not simple as they meander just like rivers! These meanders are known as Rossby Waves - the posh way of describing Rossby Waves is that they are undulations in the path of the Jet Stream that, when become more sinuous again, just like rivers! Friday, 18 May Millenium Development Goals.
I have had quite a few requests for this one! Sorry it has taken me a while to get round to doing it but I havent really done that much development revision for the last two weeks as have focused on the other modules! A number of impoverished countries have recently recieved partial or full debt cancellations though - MDGs are indeed achievbale with the right policies, adequate levels of investment and international support.
At the same time, the effects of climate change are becoming increasingly apparent, with a potenitally devastating impact on countries both rich and poor. Eridicate extreme hunger and poverty by half - Likely to be achieved by but some will fall far short, leaving 1 billion people in extreme poverty - Number in extreme poverty fell from 1.
Promote gender equality and empower women - 95 girls buys in primary education - Gender gap in school enrolement more evident in secondary education but more women enrolled at tertiary level - target not met but target is likely to be reached 4. Reduce child mortality by two thirds - Deaths in children under 5 has steadily declined - Many Asian and sub-Saharan countries have made little or no progress - Increase in deaths from 4.
Nevertheless, major progress in fighting malaria has been achieved in recent years 7. Global partnerships - Aid remains below UN targets and in , only Scandinavian countries reached this target - Increased internet connection is helping countries reach MDGS That are the 8 goals, with a few statistics about each one. The main aim of the UN's MDGs was to lessen disparity in global levels of development; how successful has this been??? The MDGs are a set of 8 targets created by the UN with the aim of increasing development across the world, not just in LDCs, with the end goal of lessening the development gap to increase the qualit of life for the world population.
The goals have targetted improvemements that factor in every aspect of development; which is the process of social and economic advanceents that leads to improvements in peoples quality of life and general wellbeing; although does focus on social advancements. The MDGs recognise signficance of demographic constraints on development, hence the goal to reduce CDR, and the intrinsic nature of education in solveing the issue and so the goals are tailored to address this.
Whilst, in theory, the goals have outlined improvements required to enable development, in reality the complexity of probelms faced in LDCS are underestimated so there is no qucik fix. Therefore the timescales for reaching the goals is unrealistic in many examples, with 23 sub-Saharan countries predicted to fall drastically short of MDG4 by There are also many unintended side effects of this goal and for example the education-related tarets encourage increase number of children in educaition, not also improving quality so, as in Sierra Leone, the full benefits of education are not experienced and athe importance of th'Girl Effect' not witnessed.
Also the MDG8 is often not prioritised and countries are becoming increasingly unlikely to meet this as they favour economic sustainability at the expense of the environment as TNC presence is the fastest way to initiate cumulative causation. Whilst MDGs outline steps for development, acheiving the goals relies on aid. Unfortunately, though, the MDGs ahs conicided with the global financial crisis and thereby restrcited the speed at which they can be achieved.
Therefore the concept of MDGs is idealistically great for aiding and guiding development but in reality timescales are unrealistic and the MDGs underestimate how much additional help LDCs require to achieve them and the importance of colonialism in enabling many MDCs to develop. What do you think about this idea?
Will it work? Will it be a better means to lesson global disparity in development compared to MDGs? Let me know what you think! Wednesday, 16 May Groupings of Nations. Got my mock back last week and I think it is safe to say that my development short answer questions didnt go quite as well as they should have done! It also seems that I was not the only one; with many struggling with the questions focusing on international groupings First up, some groupings we should be aware of - there are others but these are the ones I am planning on using!
Therefore AU would not work as they have no developed countries to 'feed off of', no global market to exploit and no model for development The EU was initially created to promote intercontinental peace and without peace Africa will not develop as a continent. Groupings could become dangerous when global climate change makes life challenging and Russia could be a good place to move to.
So would a Eurasian Union be a could idea??? What impacts do groupings have on development? Although the contemporary world is increasingly globalised, groups of nations are still viewed as one of the best approaches to development; which is the process of social and economic advancements that allows for improvements in peoples quality of life and general wellbeing. Whilst most global groups share a common aim they are all slightly different; with the WTO set up as a liberalising organisation by capatialist countries to organise world trade, the EU developed after WW2 to integrate economies and thus power to prevent intercontinental conflict and the G designed to give poor nations a voice in the international affairs of this money driven world - with these just three examples.
In theory these global groupings should help all members achieve economic and social development, as a consequence of eased movement of goods, people and knowledge, but, in reality, not every member always experiences the benefits with some groupings collectively failing to make any progress towards achieving the ultimate goal of globally paralled development. These are just a few examples and if you can think of any really good ones for environmental and demographic then please let me know!
Keep you requests for topics to be covered coming in and don't forget Millie's live revision workshops on Wednesdays at - if you have missed any you can catch the replays on her blog! Tuesday, 15 May Economic Globalisation. Just a few quick notes on economic globalisation! Subsidies and quotas are also often introduced to have the same effect. Currently, though, trade rules are unfair as some countries are forced to accept goods from abroad, whilst others protect their market with import tariffs, quotas and subsidies.
International Monetary Fund IMF and World Bank - play minor roles in running world economy - IMF established to oversee global financial system and other assistance and renegotiate debt for struggling countries - World Bank tries to reduce poverty in LDCs and promotes sustainable development.
Wednesday, 2 May Colonialism and Development. During half term I had may requests to write about colonialism as many expressed concern about a lack of note. However, a few of you said you still didn't really find that helpful, so I am going to try and briefly explain it for you! I was trying to think of positives of colonialism on Africa but I am finding it quite difficult.
In India, for example there is the education system that was installed, with lessons taught in English which has greatly enabled its development via the service industry, but for Africa I am finding it quite hard. If you have any ideas then let me know! What were the impacts of Colonialism for MDCs the colonialists! I think this is quite an interesting question as we don't seem to look at it from this perspective but do you think the UK, for example, would have developed so fast without colonialism and would we have gone so whole heartedly down the route of industrialisation?
I don't think it would have happened so fast and underestimating the importance of colonialism in early development is arguably one of the biggest criticisms of the Rostow Model of Development. Formation of colonies gave us access to raw materials, provided jobs and a workforce which we exploited, whilst also enabling early trade partnerships; all of which were intrinsic to our development.
Therefore could we say that the UK would not have developed without colonialism? Maybe that is going a bit far, but I definently think that it played an important role - let me know what you think? Neo-colonialism - There is now a new 'dash' for land in Africa but not from Europe this time, but instead from the oil rich Gulf states and Asia. Countries like Saudi Arabia and China are leasing huge tracts of sub-Sahara, sometimes in exchange for money, ports, schools etc, are using the land to grow crops for food and biofuels to send back home.
Is this right? Well, developed countries do not really possess the moral highground to object and stop this as it is essentially the same as what we did! Can nations benefit from this with regards to development? It is probably to early to say, but if it is legal, managed and fair then sub-Sahara may benefit whilst its waits for the global shift which could be for a while!!! However, the biggest issue could be the leasing of fertile soils in areas which already struggle to feed their growing populations - a subject you need to form you own opinion on!!!
I think this really covers the basics and hopefully for those of you who didn't understand my essay, this makes a bit more sense. As this area is missing from the textbook, I am guessing it is something we need to understand and be aware of but is not perhaps something we are likely to be asked directly about; well that is what I am hopinf for anyway! I am thinking about moving on to write about climate for a while, with some tectonic stuff, so let me know if there are any topics, especially with development and globalisation before I move on too far, that you would like me to cover - case study maps for all three modules are on the way but they take a while so you will have to bare with me!
I hope the revision is going well! Sunday, 29 April Geography related Books and Films. Teachers may disagree with this but I dont necessarily think that staring at a textbook all night every night is the only way to revise. Of course there is no substitute for hard work but sometimes especially for development I think that watching a relevant film can be quite good. Now for those of you who have kept up with your three hours extra reading each week since Septembet haha!
Follow the links for more detailed reviews, explanation of relevance to modules and trailers Development and Globalisation: Darfur - a group of international journalists travel to a village in Darfur in search of evidence to persuade the UN that genocide has occured but are forced to live after the Janjaweed turn up and threaten to kill them. I am sure you are all aware of the Darfur Crisis and it is a case study you caould name-drop into an answer, also could be useful AS population module but be warned it is very graphic and definetly not one for the faint-hearted!
Invictus - after 27 years imprisionment, Mandela becomes South Africa's first elected president and this film follows his bid to unite the country via the rugby world cup, seeing unification as a prerequisite to development. Goodbye Bafana - follows the unlikely friendship that forms between Mandela and his prision officer and illustrates some of the social and political impacts of colonialism in South Africa and how they continued to hinder development.
Blood Diamond - amid the explosive civil war overtaking Sierra Leone; it explores many issues including those surrounding the diamond trade, supply of arms to rebels and child soldiers. This includes links to globalisation, colonialism, the 'paradox of plenty' and simply how civil unrest prevents development. Painted Veil - set in China, in the 's, and explores the impact of a cholera outbreak on a village, including references as to how religious beliefs make containing cholera even more challenging and the impacts of an earthquake.
Focuses quite a bit on the importance of a water supply to development - the link to the module is slightly more tenuous than with some of the other films and books but it is still worth a watch! Cry Freedom - in South Africa and tells the true story of Biko and his friendship with a white liberal newspaper editor. Good film to watch for development as explores impact of apartheid on development and the importance of political stability for development to occur.
Gandhi - a biopic about the life of Gandhi with particular reference to his prominent role in India's struggle for freedom from colonial rule. Slumdog Millionaire - provides an insight into the life of children living in the Indian slums the problems associated here.
Also illustrates how they are trying to improve education to enable development. Erin Brockovich - a good film that presents the negative impacts of the natural gas industry and the extent to which large companies are prepared to go to, to cover this up. Not only would this be good for the AS Energy module but also globalisation with reference to the negative impact of TNCs.
The Constant Gardener - a rather sad story about how a drug company exploit the Kenyan population to allow them to test a new drug, despite the fact they know it has harmful side effects. Also explores the idea of corrupt governments and issues faced in LDCs. The Cove - this film is very thought provoking and presented the issues surrounding the dolphin trade - before watching this I didn't know a lot about the issue, especially the scale of it in Japan, and it left me feeling very shocked that something like this still exists today in such a developed country.
Issues of groupings, tied aid and trade are briefly explored also. M Stanley in the s. Chasing the Devil: On Foot Through The Killing Fields of Africa is another Tim Butcher book, although this time based in Sierra Leona, that covers many issues intrinsic to low levels of development in Africa and the problems associated with this. The Boy Who Harnessed The Power Of The Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer - tells the extraordinary true story of a Malawian teenager who overcame many obstacles to provide electricity and clean water for his village by capturing the energy in both the wind and the sun.
Good for AS Energy as well as A2 development and illustrates the importance of energy supplies and appropraite technology to development. It also touches on the issues of living in areas of climatic extremes, the role of education and how corrupt governments influence aid distribution. PeopleQuake: Mass migration, ageing nations and the coming population crash by Fred Pearce - a book about the population bomb and how demographics is driving politics.
Explore how we got to this point and where we are currently heading and how it can be solved. Therefore it is a great book for AS Population covers practically the entire module with some useful case studies and statistics! Human geographers will not doubt love this book but any geographer out there, like myself, who get carried away with the science and forget to mention people, this book is worth a read!
Globalization and Its Discontents by Joseph Stiglitz - as chief economist at the World Bank that author has a unique insider's view into the management of globalisation. This makes it a very good book for globalisation! Plate Tectonics and Associated Hazards: Aftershock - based around the Tangshan earthquake, which killed , people and coincided with huge political changes in China. This film cover issues including aid, politics and follows China as it changes over the time period covered.
Studying geography can enhance your navigation skills, no matter where you are. Studying geography will help you make sense of and appreciate different cultures around the globe. Learning about land, resource availability, and how that has shaped a culture to be the way it is today helps you understand the uniqueness of a culture.
If you decide to study geography in college, your opportunities after graduation are vast. Many geography grads go into urban and regional planning, a field that is growing fast. Other geographers work in environmental management and consulting and can have a direct impact in the fight against climate change.
Also, the skills learned during a geography degree, such as cartography, data representation, and research writing, transfer well into the workforce and can make you a standout applicant! The study of geography helps us to understand relationships between cultures. Ultimately, this leads to a more accepting and culturally aware society. Those who study geography have a unique perspective — one that comes with the knowledge of many cultures and spatial awareness that is not replicated in other disciplines.
This mix of knowledge can help geographers come up with significant and unique solutions that others may not be able to see. Another way geography can have a positive influence in the world is by creating awareness of the effect of climate change. Geographers have intimate knowledge of weather patterns and climate changes throughout the course of history on areas of land. They also have studied how those changes have affected humans in those areas.
That knowledge is shared with others to hopefully bring an understanding and global awareness of the effects of climate change on human society. University of the People is committed to making a change towards sustainability as well. As a fully online university that also uses only free, open-source textbooks, University of the People cuts the need for printed and shipped materials, the need for fuel usage for transport of people and materials to campuses, and promotes quality education for people all over the world, no matter their physical location.
Being an educated global citizen starts with the study of geography. Global citizens are conscious-minded of the world around them, understand others, and work towards making the entire globe a better place. That all starts with the study of geography! So, once again, why is geography important?
At the end of the day, geography will help you become a better overall global citizen. Apply Now. Request Info. Ask a student. UoPeople Arabic. Business Administration. Master's Degree MBA.

How does it look and how does it behave? To be up there on some high cloud, or a bicycle, or whatever else your godly environment permits, wiggling your fingers toward a dark corner of the Universe and have a new world spawn and take life under your eyes. It is good, and as a fiction writer, you get to be God every day.
Sometimes on a smaller scale, sometimes on a larger scale. Sometimes your creations make you proud; other times, they turn out of control, and you must punish them. Still, you get to be God, and that is what world-building gives you — the satisfaction of creation, the power to make life and watch it play in front of you, without leaving your desk.
Now, is your story the same as your world? The answer is no. Even in a milieu story, where the setting is important, you must never forget the other components of a complete story. Simply put, a story is a bunch of interesting characters involved in an interesting plot, raising a certain level of emotional response in the reader, while everything is taking place in an interesting setting. Well, if you drop it out of characters, you will wind up with boring characters.
Let me explain. Now, NYC is an interesting city, by all means, but it is still just that: a city on Earth. Unless you are writing an alternate history or post-apocalyptic situation, you pretty much know what to expect from a city. The same goes if you decide to write a new novel set in OZ.
The premise of OZ is already there; you merely ride the wave. This series of posts deal with world creation, giving you tangible, step-by-step solutions on how to go about it. How do you start a story? Usually, different writers love one or another or become more comfortable with one or another over time.
For example, you could start with one or a few characters; you can start with a plotline or think of a setting first. Either way, to get the complete story, you will still have to come up with all three and mesh them together in the best possible way. There are many books on plot and character, and you can take those rules plus your own and apply them to any genre, from science fiction to romance and so on.
So, I find it very useful first to define and understand the world, and later on, let the characters play the plot in that world to shape the full story. Since the Universe—any Universe—is infinite, any subset of the Universe is a Universe in itself. I like to break them down into two concepts: Macro-Universe and Micro-Universe. Your story world will be somewhere between those two.
Strong characters and powerful stories can happen anywhere. But a lot of times, just like in Oz, or Lord of The Rings, the story world is so strongly intertwined with the plot that it becomes unique and immediately recognizable, and that is what you want to shoot for. This being said, I like to begin my worlds by thinking about the outer shell and working my way toward the inner shell.
In some instances, you may not need to go as far. As we will see later, the geographical world is not something fixed in space and time. There are history, genesis, and interactions that made the world be what it is. You need to decide how important those are to your story. Just note that this becomes increasingly important if you are working on a series. Is it on a planet, is it suspended in some unknown structure, does it simply exist, and no one knows or had ever wondered what lies beyond its boundaries?
Especially if you will introduce religion and magic into your world, later on, those concepts are usually significantly influenced by the way your world was created and where it exists. Just like humans are constantly preoccupied and searching for the origin and reason for life, your story world can go through the same turmoil, adding tension and drama to the world.
At the end of the day, your story will take place within physically limited bounds, such as a galaxy, planet, country, land, field, city, fortress, etc. Somewhere where characters can move, interact, and where things can happen. In your case, the Universe could be very fuzzy if it is unimportant to the story. Your world will have characters in it, interacting, as we said.
So, you need to draw a parallel between our real world and your imaginary world and see how many of the things we experience here on Earth can be applied to your world and how many are worth changing. The easiest way to think about a Universe is a globe or a sphere. Your world is somewhere inside that sphere. Giving it that shape will make it easier for you to picture it.
Once you established the idea of your Universe and gave your world a place inside it, now you have to start building the physical part of your world. Every time I have to create a new world, I struggle with this idea: how big should the world be? Let me teach you a little trick. Think about Earth and do things relative to familiar earthly notions. Do you envision a world that is roughly as big as Paris, or as big as Europe, or as big as Africa, or maybe even as big as Earth, or perhaps twice as big as Earth?
Either way, narrowing down the approximate size and finding a matching size on Earth will help you tremendously. Once you have a mental approximate size for your world, think about a few aspects that will influence the way you define your world:. These two will influence the way you create your map. If there are ways for your characters to travel by water, with ships or other means, you could create oceans and seas between your lands.
Another important aspect is how advanced is your society. These are elements that will influence the way your map will look in the end:. So, how do you start planning your map, especially if you are not too good at drawing, like me? This is what I do: I first decide the general size of my world, as explained above, and then I open Excel or any other spreadsheet program, like Numbers or Google Sheets , and I create a matrix of narrow rows and columns.
When I say narrow, I mean millimeters on your screen. That will give you a square matrix. To do so, open a new document, and select multiple rows and columns and resize them down to obtain a small grid. Depending on the size of your world, decide on a scale for each cell. That gives you a 40 x 40 matrix. Ensure you select the entire matrix and add borders all around each cell to make it easier to read.
What you want to do here is scale various parts of your world. Since you know one cell is 50 miles, a 3 x 3 square will be x miles, such as a 22, square miles area, about the size of West Virginia. To make this easier for you, I have created a template that gives you a 40 x 40 matrix, an 80 x 80 matrix roughly size of Asia , and a x matrix.
Download it here , and use it freely. The Macros are needed because I have a few tools to help you calculate areas. Once you completed this part, you should probably print it. Now you have a simplistic, birds-eye view of your world, rectangular and unrealistic, but still a decent start.
If I have semi-opaque paper, I use that; otherwise, I put the papers on top of each other on a window facing out, so I can see the Excel drawing through the paper. Cultural geography is a trendy aspect of human geography. It studies the development of societies and cultures from their local landscapes and describes how differences in cultures shape these landscapes. The interaction of humans with their natural landscape creates the cultural landscape.
Cultural geography deals with the study of language, economic structures, religion, governmental structures, music, art, globalization, etc. Here are some sassy cultural geography essay topics that are interesting and easy to work on! There is massive scale globalization occurring in the world today resulting from the explosive growth of technology, evolving modes of transportation, and the increase in rate and amount of information transfer and communication.
If we gain more understanding of our world at large, we will be better prepared and able to address pressing issues and determine our future. The study of World geography can be from many fronts via various approaches. For example, a regional approach will focus on the themes illustrating the process of globalization, giving us a better understanding of the current affairs in our global community and how the global community fares.
A spatial approach, on the other hand, provides us with an understanding of the various elements of our global community. Here are some examples of world geography ideas that you can explore.
