Why are things located where they are? What makes societies and biophysical environments different from place to place? How does location affect access to the things all species need to survive and flourish?

You explore why places are different; the economic, political and cultural systems that connect us locally, regionally and globally; and how we shape—and in turn are shaped by—our environment.
