Geography Awareness Week (GAWeek), celebrated every third week of November, is an awareness program focused on highlighting the importance of geo-literacy and geo-education. This year's theme is "Declare Your Interdependence," which explores the idea that we are all are connected to the rest of the world through the decisions we make on a daily basis, including what foods we eat and the things we buy.

Geography is the study of the world and all that's in it. It asks the question "What makes a place the way it is?" and the answer includes any and all interactions with other places. Understanding these interactions can help scientists, historians, business professionals and policy-makers to understand the past and predict future events.
