Geography Week 2016

Geography Awareness Week

Geography Awareness Week 2016 is upon us! #GeoWeek encourages citizens of all ages to think and learn about the significance of place and how we affect and are affected by it. This year’s theme is “Explore the Power of Parks,” in honor of the National Park Service’s centennial celebration. This week, take the opportunity that #GeoWeek presents to raise awareness about the importance of geography education, and excite people about geography as both a discipline, and as a part of everyday life. We encourage everyone to get involved and help promote geo-literacy–not just during Geography Awareness Week, but every week throughout the entire year!
