Geography
This video is part of the series Cultural Interdependence

The first element that influences how people act in cultures is Geography, which can be broken down into Topography, Climate and Natural Resources. Topography, the natural surface features of an area, causes people to adapt, often by changing land and water phenomena, or by building structures upon them. Climate, the average temperature and precipitation of an area over time, creates many varied human lifestyles. Natural Resources, animal, plant and mineral, are behind many human activities, from economics to religious beliefs and values, from indigenous to developing to developed cultures. These diverse cultures are beginning today to depend more upon each other to meet their needs and wants.
