Abstract

Geography by itself does not necessarily foster international understandings let alone goodwill, among schoolchildren. It is necessary that geography be taught by up-to-date methods for the deliberate purpose of promoting international understanding by internationally minded teachers. Understanding is as much an attitude of mind as it is an intellectual comprehension. Goodwill tends to be caught rather than taught through imitation of respected teachers. Nevertheless, of all the subjects in the school curriculum geography has the greatest potential and responsibility for promoting peaceful co-operation amongst the world's peoples.
