Item description for Globalism and Regionalism (Edge Futures) by Jonathon Porritt...
Globalism and Regionalism considers the impact that dwindling resources and restricted travel will have on global competitiveness and regional identity. Competition between countries is likely to increase. Whilst this may lead to conflict it could also facilitate greater creativity. This in turn will put a premium on technological advancement and on our ability to respond rapidly to change. Simultaneously, regionalism will develop and localities could become more distinctive and potentially aggressive.
Edge Futures are a series of six books that explore the impact that climate change will have on different aspects of our lives in the future. They are available to order as individual titles or as a complete set.
The Edge is an innovative and creative think-tank, sponsored by building industry professions, that seeks to stimulate public interest in policy questions that affect the built environment and to inform and influence public opinion.
Jonathan Porritt is Chair of the UK Sustainable Development Commission (SDC) and formerly Director of Friends of the Earth.
