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 campaign—backed by a coalition of major national partners—to expand geographic learning in school, at home, and in the community. We want to give our kids the power of global knowledge.

What can you do?

Get involved! Sign up for the My Wonderful World e-newsletter (for parents, educators, and kids and teens). Tell your lawmakers you support geography education. And help us spread the word about My Wonderful World—because kids who understand our world today can succeed in it tomorrow.
