The Idaho Geographic Alliance was re-launched at University of Idaho in 2010. It is focusing on core operations and strategic planning in the next year.

Geographic literacy is more than knowing state capitals and reading maps. Everyone needs to understand how people and places interact, why and how 'place' is important. Without a sense of geography, our young people will find themselves unprepared for their future, which will be inevitably linked to the rest of the world. Be a part of the campaign to make geography a key component in Idaho's classrooms.
