New Year, new message for geography in 2016.

TheGeoScholar blog has not been that large in 2015. However, the idea for 2015 is that of geography being broad and dynamic. That is one important message of geography.

This video sums up that message

However, there is another message in addition. In order to learn geography, not only should we understand that it is broad and dynamic, we need to experience it. We need to go out and explore it for ourselves. Explore. Go outside. Yes, we need to read about geography, but we need to go and see it for ourselves, feel it, touch it, film it, go out into the field. That is how the first people to learn and research geography did it. By going out and exploring the world for themselves.
