Ideas For The New Millennium
Dr Peter Ellyard, a strategic analyst, argues that a new interdependent planetary society is emerging in the dawn of the new millennium. He describes the nature of this emerging planetary society, the forces which are creating it, and a new paradigm which will accompany its birth. Ellyard discusses what these transformations will mean for leadership and management, for education and learning, for health and wellbeing, for industrial development, food production and agriculture, for environmental management, for intercultural relations and understanding and how these changes can assist the creation of an ecologically, economically, socially and culturally sustainable society in the twenty-first century.
