Sample text from one of the posters from the set:

What is geography?

Geography is the study of the Earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, the study of the world we live in.

“Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments.” - National Geographic

“The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map.
It’s about understanding the complexity of our world.”
- Barack Obama

“Geography is the study of things becoming.” - H.J Fleure, GA President 1948
