Geography and internationalisation: Geography (geo earth) deals with places, people and cultures. It explores international issues ranging from physical, urban and rural environments, and their evolution, to climate, pollution, development and political-economy.
Key issues are how these features are interconnected, forming patterns and processes impacting on present and future generations. By its nature Geography continues to connect the physical, human and technological sciences.
