Geography is a broad-based discipline and combines social and natural science issues and methods. Accordingly, it is divided into two main branches and deals with human geographical as well as physical geographical content. Especially the interactions between humans and space characterise current geography as an integrative spatial and environmental science, which considers natural and social science aspects equally. Due to its interdisciplinary alignment, geography tuition is particularly suitable for dealing with future-relevant global issues and of making complex relationships understandable. Contemporary geography teaching enables school students to acquire a deeper spatial understanding and active space design.
