Through examples and real world problems, it explains how solutions can be brought up by solving them geographically.

#9-Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century | Democracy in Place and Space | Scoop.it

"The Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century teaches the geographic skills and concepts that are necessary to understand the world. Geography educators and content experts from around the globe shed light on the physical, human, political, historical, economic, and cultural factors that affect people and natural environments. Maps, animation, and academic commentary bring into focus case studies from 50 sites in 36 countries."
