RIO+20 base document needs to take the planet's limits into consideration | Agência FAPESP | Geoflorestas | Scoop.it

The document, however, should emphasize the principle that the planet has a natural limit—a central concept for sustainable development—in a more clear and objective manner. Such is the opinion of Carlos Alfredo Joly, head of the Policies and Thematic Programs Department (DEPPT), Secretary of Policies and Research and Development Programs (SEPED) for the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) and coordinator of the BIOTA-FAPESP program.

Spatial Intelligence - Spatial thought is encapsulated in Geography as a science

Spatial Intelligence - Spatial thought is encapsulated in Geography as a science | Geoflorestas | Scoop.it

"Everything happens within the space in which man lives. We are born somewhere and we are sure to die somewhere. However, before that happens we all exist within space on earth, have an impact on the space within which we live, or are impacted by the space within which we live. Humans therefore, must think spatially. It really is something that we do almost every day, often times without even knowing that this is what we are doing. Certainly you would have planned what is the best route to work this morning or may at this present moment be thinking of the least expensive way home."
