The 2015 Geography Awareness Week theme is

"Explore! The Power of Maps"

November 15-21, 2015

Geography Awareness Week is an "annual public awareness program organized by National Geographic Education Programs (NGEP) [which] encourages citizens young and old to think and learn about the significance of place and how we affect and are affected by it. Each third week of November, students, families and community members focus on the importance of geography by hosting events; using lessons, games, and challenges in the classroom; and often meeting with policymakers and business leaders as part of that year’s activities. Geography Awareness Week is supported by year-long access to materials and resources for teachers, parents, community activists and all geographically minded global citizens."
