Geographical thinking includes relating the near and far, physical and human, people and environments and economic and social. Geographical insights also come from the tension between the universal and the specific: natural and human processes play out differently from place to place and geography recognises that this really matters. Many contemporary challenges – climate change, food security, energy choices – cannot be understood without a geographical perspective. As the world subject, geography helps young people understand and respect difference and commonality. It introduces them to real world examples of responsible citizenship and gives them authentic opportunities to develop their own, through considered debate around current issues. The use of maps, images, numerical data and geographic information systems (GIS) makes geographers skilful and employable.
