Human-environment interaction looks at the relationships between people and their environment; how people adapt to the environment and how they change it.

I accidentally put the education system with human-environment interation, but it is meant to be with region.

Primary education:

The first 9 years of school education in Libya are compulsory and free. This basic education program includes lessons in Arabic, Islamic languages, Jamahiriyi society, mathematics, natural sciences, history, geography, art, music, and technical and physical education.The first 6 years of this take place at primary school.

Middle education:

The final 3 years of basic education take place at middle school. Upon completion, a basic education certificate may be awarded, following which pupils have the choice of finding work, or going on to secondary school.

Secondary education:

Grades 10 to 12 at secondary school complete the Libyan schooling cycle at general level, where students may choose between science and arts to prepare to go on to university. Should they prefer to go to technical secondary school instead, then they may spend 4 years studying one of economics, arts and media, biology, engineering or social sciences there, with a view to perhaps spending time at a higher institution later too.

An endangered plant in Libya is Arbutus pavarii.

Arbutus pavarii is a species of plant in the heath family. It is endemic to Libya.

These plants have become very rare to find, and no one knows the reason to it.

The fruit from the plant are very like strawberrys.

A region is an area that is defined by certain similar characteristics. Those unifying or similar characteristics can be physical, natural, human, or cultural.

Within Libya as many as five different climatic zones have been recognized, but the dominant climatic influences are Mediterranean and Saharan. In most of the coastal lowland, the climate is Mediterranean, with warm summers and mild winters. Rainfall is scanty, and the dry climate results in a year-round 98-percent visibility. The weather is cooler in the highlands, and frosts occur at maximum elevations. In the desert interior the climate has very hot summers and extreme diurnal temperature ranges.


Movement refers to the way people, products, information and ideas move from one place to another. This can be local such as how did you get to school today, or it can be global such as how did humans get to North America?

Under Italian colonial rule from 1911 until 1942, Libya had no flag of its own. Subsequently, under British and French administration, only the Union Jack and the French Tricolor were flown. Nevertheless, the Sanūsiyyah (Sennusiya), a powerful Islamic sect, had long displayed flags of black with inscriptions from the Qurʾān. In 1947 the Sanūsī leader became the king of Cyrenaica, which, with Tripolitania and Fezzan, became the United Kingdom of Libya.

When Libya declared its independence on December 24, 1951, it was the first country to achieve independence through the United Nations and one of the first former European possessions in Africa to gain independence. Libya was proclaimed a constitutional and a hereditary monarchy under King Idris.

Imagine your world being taken over and having to fight for what is rightfully yours. This is exactly what people in Libya had to deal with when their homes were taken over by foreigners. The two options for Libya, or a country that has been taken over, is either to just let it be or fight for independence.

There is a predominance of foreign labor in scientific and technical positions.

234 out of 1000 Libyans have cars, which is the highest rate in Africa. The best roads run along the coast between Tripoli and Tunis in Tunisia; also between Benghazi and Tobruk, connecting with Alexandria in Egypt. A fairly efficient bus service operates along these routes, with two main bus transport companies.

Current events

1st current event: Refugee women and children 'beaten, raped and starved in Libyan hellholes'

Women and children making the dangerous journey to Europe to flee poverty and conflicts in Africa are being beaten, raped and starved in “living hellholes” in Libya. Children are being sexually abused, coerced into prostitution and work, and held to ransom for months in squalid, overcrowded detention centres, as they flee war and poverty in Africa to undertake one of the most dangerous journeys in the world to Europe

2nd current event: NGO rescues off Libya encourage traffickers, says EU borders chief

NGOs who rescue people in the sea off Libya are encouraging traffickers who profit from dangerous Mediterranean crossings. 40% of recent rescue operations at sea off the north African country were carried out by non-government organisations, making it impossible to check the origins of the migrants or their smuggling routes if the NGOs did not cooperate.
