DIARIO GEOSTRATEGICO 01-09-2021

Il nostro diario ha sempre come inizio uno sguardo sulle tecnologie della “the science of where”: oggi, in particolare, ci concentriamo su biodiversità e “impronta umana”. Oltre ai passaggi nelle tecnologie, nella cybersecurity, nella difesa e nello spazio (e nei relativi mercati), il viaggio nei mondi guarda ancora all’Afghanistan e alle prospettive del regime talebano nonché alle implicazioni che il ritiro degli USA comporta e comporterà a livello regionale e globale. Naturalmente, c’è molto altro ! 

Il nostro approccio è di pensiero critico e complesso perché non basta l’approccio superficiale, lineare e a-critico e perché nulla è separato dal resto.
