About IBGB Learning Society
IBGB Learning Society is a registered not-for-profit organization that was established in 2009 by a group of academicians with an idea to stimulate active interest in geographical and environmental studies among young people. ‘Contemporary Geography’ is much more than memorizing names and places. Geography has higher aims than this and it constitutes physical geography where you learn about geophysical processes (such as plate tectonics, soil formation, and climate), and human geography deals with humans and their relationships with communities, cultures, economies, and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across locations. Geography also engages with contemporary problems and issues using an array of skills and a unique spatial perspective.
