Geography is a vital subject resource for today’s global citizens. It is an important link between natural and social sciences. For understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development, it is important to focus on Geography within the curriculum.
Late Sh. G.K.Piplani, a telecommunication engineer by profession and Mrs. Pushpa Piplani, retired Geography teacher realised that Geography as a discipline has lost its importance in this new era of science and there was a need of an impact driven organization,for motivating deeper understanding in Geography. Thus, to explore, inspire and educate the young students, IBGB Learning Society was formed in 2009.
Dr. Ruchika Bathla expanded the mission by conducting Geo Genius National Geography Olympiad in schools across India. The Olympiad focus primarily on school students from class 2 to 12, as they are developing a global perspective, forming their worldviews and are open to looking at the world differently.
