Reinventing Borders for Environmental and Social Harmony
As humankind developed nation states, geopolitical borders became more physically clear, but usually not defined by natural boundaries. Our perception of the world has become more defined by countries. Twentieth century efforts at eroding country borders have been partially reversed in the last 20 years due to a resurgence of nationalism. By focusing on ecological impacts and benefits of borders we need to start a more pragmatic win-win societal discussion of political borders.
