ABOUT MY WONDERFUL WORLD
Geography is more than places on a map. It's global connections and incredible creatures. It's people and cultures, economics and politics. And it's essential to understanding our interconnected world.
But sadly, our kids aren't getting enough of it. A new National Geographic-Roper
survey shows half of young Americans can't locate world powers like Japan and India.
Twenty percent can't even find the Pacific Ocean. (More
about the survey.) Without geography, our children aren't
ready for the world.
That's why we started My Wonderful World. It's a National Geographic-led campaignbacked by a coalition of major national partnersto expand geographic learning in school, at home, and in the community. We want to give our kids the power of global knowledge.
