We are living in a unique “geo” age, where geography is appreciated again. The 21st century encompasses political and economic games where the multi-polar world, new world order and a new value system combine to develop new actors and new industries. Business leaders are focusing more and more on global social issues, putting pressure on international political decisions such as the Space Race, global warming and migration
The 21st century is the era of knowledge & creativity (technology + knowledge + geography = “techknowledgeography” or Geofusion) where education and innovation are the most important investment. Knowledge is the currency of the future. When drawn with knowledge, the map of the 21st century can be utilized to discover and confirm this new world! This book helps to explain how ‘Geofusion’ provides the opportunities, which can give lasting value to the world.
