  • Global Inequality: The Costa Rica Solution

    An awesome animation made by my dear friend Andreas Lundström and narrated by me. The world is suffering from extreme inequality. The richest 10 % of the world's adult population own 80 % of its wealth, and the poorest half of the population owns less than 5 %. So the reason that 50 000 people die from poverty every day, is not that we don't have enough resources but that they are unevenly distributed. And the solution isn't that poor countries get as wealthy as rich countries, because if everybody lived like the average American, we would need five planets! If you split the world's wealth with its population, you get 13 000 dollars per year. That's the GDP per capita of Costa Rica. Costa Rica scores number 1 in the Happy Planet Index; they combine a very long life expectancy with a very...

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Costa Rica/San Jose San José is divided into 11 districts : Catedral, Carmen, Hatillo, Hospital, Uruca, Mata Redonda, Merced, Pavas, San Francisco de Dos Ríos, San Sebastián, Zapote. The districts are divided up into a number of neighborhoods San José is the capital of Costa Rica, head of the province of San José, and the nation's largest city. Located in the Central Valley, San José is the seat of national government, the focal point of political and economic activity, and the major transportation hub of this Central American nation. The population of San José Canton is 288,054, though the metropolitan area stretches beyond the canton limits and comprises a third of the country's population.Culturally, the city can be considered almost entirely European influenced, in part because of Spanish immigration soon after Costa Rica's discovery by Christopher Columbus, and the privileged classes which generally studied in Europe during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. This can be seen in the architecture of the city, namely theatres, museums and houses in the city centre. It is named in honor of Joseph of Nazareth.Though few people live in the city center, it is the most important working area of the country, which brings in more than a million people daily. Despite its problems, according to studies in Latin America, San José is still one of the safest and least violent cities in the region. In 2006 the city was appointed Ibero-American Capital of Culture.San José is also the sixth most important destination in Latin America, according to The MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index 2012. In the global ranking, San Jose obtained the 15th position among the world's top 20 fastest growing destination cities by visitor cross-border spending. The population grew during the eighteenth century colonial planning, which was different from the traditional foundation plans of Spanish cities in the continent. History: Founded in 1738 by order of Cabildo de León, its objective was to concentrate the scattered inhabitants of the Aserrí Valley. To do so, the construction of a chapel near the area known as La Boca del Monte was ordered, this was completed two years later. That year St. Joseph was chosen as parish patron, hence its current name. The chapel, which was very modest, was erected with help from the church of Cartago.San Jose had water problems, and that was one of the main reasons that the population grew slowly. However, the water supply was assured by ditches, and the fertility of the surrounding fields along with the installation of the Tobacco Factory of Costa Rica, which would aide urban concentration. As San Jose, unlike what happened to Cartago, was not founded with a formal act of foundation, it was not considered as a city or town, and consequently the city lacked a city government. It was not until the enactment of the Constitution of Cadiz in 1812 when San Jose had its first city government. In 1813, the Spanish parliament gave the town the title of city, which was then lost in 1814 when Ferdinand VII of Spain annulled the proceedings by the courts. The municipal government was restored in 1820 with the title of city population. San José is one of the youngest capital cities in Latin America by year of conception, though it was not named capital until 1823. Today it is a modern city with bustling commerce, brisk expressions of art and architecture, and spurred by the country's improved tourism industry, it is a significant destination and stopover for foreign visitors.San José exerts a strong influence because of its proximity to other cities (Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago) and the country's demographic assemblage in the Central Valley.

Costa Rica Versus Panama: Which Country is Best for You? http://internationalliving.com/2013/11/costa-rica-panama-dan-tries-decide/ My wife, Suzan Haskins, and I were married in Costa Rica 14 years ago and have been back for business and pleasure almost every year since. We also lived in Panama in 2006 and, like Costa Rica, have returned nearly every year for International Living events, editorial trips, and vacations. So it is inevitable that IL readers, subscribers, and event attendees ask...and ask often...which country we prefer. That's when we give our "Blunt Instrument" answer. Trying to compare the relative merits of entire countries as expat destinations is kind of like cracking peanuts with a baseball bat. You can do it, but the results aren't the most useful or easy to digest. Of course, there are some obvious, overarching differences that you can swing a bat at. Panama's official currency is the U.S. dollar and it has had a significant expat population for more than 100 years thanks to the Panama Canal. Costa Rica has no standing army and has a clear national policy of promoting environmental awareness and tourism. Both countries have Pacific and Caribbean coastlines. Both have towns ranging from large metropolitan shopping and entertainment meccas to tiny upland and seaside villages. Both have cooler highland destinations and tropical coastal spots where you'll find concentrations of expats. But which country is better? Time to put down the bat. You need a finer tool for teasing out the particular differences between, say, the beach community of Coronado in Panama and the beach community of Jaco in Costa Rica—or between the cool uplands of Panama's popular expat destination of Boquete or Volcan and the cool uplands of Costa Rica's popular expat destination of San Ramon or the Arenal area. What is that finer tool? Most often, it's the particular likes and dislikes of the person asking the question in the first place. It usually goes something like this. Someone asks: "So which is better, Panama or Costa Rica?" We answer: "Are you looking for beach, highland, city, or country? Is cost of living incredibly important to you or not so much? Is proximity to the best health care a deal breaker, or does it matter to you at this point? Do you care how many other expats you have around, or do you never want to see another gringo again? How long a drive do you want to make to get a flight out?" And that's when people start clarifying their own goals and refining their own perspective of what they're really looking for in a retirement or second home destination. They put down the "Panama vs. Costa Rica" bat and pick up the magnifying glass of Grecia vs. El Valle or Panama City vs. San Jose and even individual neighborhoods like Marbella vs. Santa Ana. View all these places from 50,000 feet and you can't tell them apart... From that high up they're all just Panama or Costa Rica. But dial in and get your boots on the ground and you'll see the differences and similarities that become significant to you personally. By all means take a swing at "Panama vs. Costa Rica"—but be ready to trade the bat for a magnifying glass as soon as you figure out exactly what kind of weather, scenery, population, infrastructure, cost of living, and real estate prices make up your ideal location. There are specific places in both countries that tick most of our boxes and where Suzan and I could happily live. But to be honest, as the years go by it matters less and less to us what country these specific locations are in. Politics and policies change so fast in today's world that, at this point, all we ask of entire countries is that they be relatively stable and freedom loving, be relatively easy to enter and exit, have relatively easy bureaucracies to navigate, have relatively good health care available somewhere, and have relatively beautiful and affordable places like Arenal and Boquete and Coronado and Nosara and Pedasi and Uvita and all those other incredible places in them. Fortunately, Panama and Costa Rica both fit the bill nicely, which means Suzan and I don't have to have a favorite...we can love them both. Is that cheating?

An awesome animation made by my dear friend Andreas Lundström and narrated by me. The world is suffering from extreme inequality. The richest 10 % of the world's adult population own 80 % of its wealth, and the poorest half of the population owns less than 5 %. So the reason that 50 000 people die from poverty every day, is not that we don't have enough resources but that they are unevenly distributed. And the solution isn't that poor countries get as wealthy as rich countries, because if everybody lived like the average American, we would need five planets! If you split the world's wealth with its population, you get 13 000 dollars per year. That's the GDP per capita of Costa Rica. Costa Rica scores number 1 in the Happy Planet Index; they combine a very long life expectancy with a very small ecological foot print. If everybody lived like Costa Ricans, wealth would be evenly distributed and we would only need one planet. Which is what we got. Help us promote equality, sustainability and poverty reduction. Live on less than 13 000 dollars a year and give the rest of your money to the poor. Thank you.

In May of 2015, Scott Carrlee traveled to Costa Rica as part of a Research Abroad study trip with the International Development Doctoral Program of the University of Southern Mississippi. The trip included a stop at four indigenous territories where Carrlee and fellow researchers gained firsthand knowledge of the impact of tourism on the indigenous population through interviews and participation in indigenous-led rain forest tours. Scott has been working for the Alaska State Museums since 2000. Prior to coming to Juneau, he held conservator positions at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, and at an archaeological excavation in Turkey. After 6 years as the Alaska State Museum's conservator, he became the Curator of Museum Services, providing technical assistance to museums and the public around Alaska. Through this position, he promotes the idea that the greatest tool yet invented for the preservation of objects is the museum itself. Recorded on Tuesday, November 17, 2015

AP Environmental Science students were asked to produce videos on human population growth in an assigned country, thus integrating our Global Education Program directly into the science curriculum. Each video was required to include the following elements: general introduction, detailed statistics on population growth and age structure, explanation for the population trends in this country, discussion of the environmental impacts of the population growth, and suggestions of how this country can become more sustainable. The goal was for the students to learn about human population growth as well as understand how culture, religion, history, and politics impact population growth by researching and producing their video. Peer review was built into this project to expose students to the information in other videos, as well as to help them sharpen their critical thinking skills and to be able to evaluate their own work in comparison to their classmates. Three of the assigned countries in this project, India, Costa Rica, and Senegal, are destinations for participating juniors in our Global Education Program.

Quepos is a district and the capital of Aguirre canton in Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica. The district has a population of about 22,000 people The town is about 60 km. south from Costa Rica's capital, San José, but is 157 km from that city by road if going through the localities of Atenas, Orotina and Tárcoles. Quepos is the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park. The city is very tourism-oriented, having many bars and restaurants and a vivacious night-life. The town is named for the native Quepo Indians who inhabited the place in the colonial era. Quepos is well known thanks to being the gateway to a popular National Park and beaches in Costa Rica. Several years ago the country's park service imposed limits on the number of visitors to the park (600 per day, and it's closed on Mondays).

http://www.mdgfund.org/ Though Costa Rica's youth have a high level of literacy and education, they suffer from high levels of unemployment. This Joint Programme increased access to decent jobs by improving the employability and entrepreneurialism of young people between the ages of 15 and 24, especially female, rural and migrant youth, and those in vulnerable situations.
