It is part of the National Geographic Society’s work to ensure that our nation’s youth are Geo-literate—that they understand how Earth’s interconnected human, ecological, and geophysical systems function, and have the ability to apply that understanding to decision-making and problem solving. This year’s theme of “declaring your interdependence” promotes geo-literacy and explores the idea that one is constantly making connections all over the world through the things they buy, the foods they eat, and the decisions they make.
