Geography is to space as history is to time. Just as History organises time, brings time into perspective and allows us to learn from our past, Geography does the same for us, but in a spatial sense.

Geography provides us with the ability to Organise and understand “the space” we live in, and to place the world into perspective. This is especially important in an ever-more changing world. Geography also allows us to interact with the environment, explore our responses to issues and challenges that need to be overcome regarding how man and nature interact. Through Geography we understand the processes that are at work in the physical and human worlds.
