The Education Portal is developed by National Geographic's Center for Geo-Education. As the educational outreach arm of National Geographic, the Center for Geo-Education brings the Society's spirit of exploration and adventure to our goal of educating young people about their world.
In the modern world, every member of society will face decisions throughout their lives that will require them to understand how our interconnected world works. Our current educational system is not providing young people with the understanding of their world that they will need to make those decisions well.
Our mission is to make sure that young people gain the understanding of their interconnected world that they will need to function effectively and act responsibly throughout their lives.
In pursuit of our mission, the Center for Geo-Education conducts four types of activities for three audiences focused on critical learning goals:
To function in today’s interconnected world, every person must have a fundamental understanding of how our world works. National Geographic has adopted the term geo-education to describe the set of in-school and out-of-school experiences that teach young people how our interconnected world works and how to function effectively in it.
