Keywords:Integrated Geography, Physical Geography, Education for Sustainable Development

In February 2018, the next new national curriculum standard proposed new geography subject, "Integrated Geography" which integrates arts and sciences. So we have to pay attention to physical geography. On the other hand, physical geography education plays little part in high school geography education, because physical geography education has been divided into two subjects, earth science and geography, since World War 2.
This presentation introduce "Integrated Geography" and a practical plan for teaching it.
