MSU Professor Leo Zulu brings together rain forest conservation and social justice issues as part of Geography Awareness Week.

Geography Awareness was created by Presidential Proclamation during the Reagan administration  to help young Americans better understand their roles as global citizens.

Michigan State University plays the lead role in GeoWeek in Mid-Michigan, and Current State also presents several discussions on WKAR related to geographic awareness in a week-long series.

Today, MSU Associate  Professor of Geography Leo Zulu tells us about how his experience creates connections between the physical geography of forestry and social geography.
