Fig 1. Globalisation of the world

Globalisation is something you have probably never heard of, though chances are that you are part of the globalisation process even though you do not know about it. Chances are you are wearing Chinese made clothes but they are from a Western branded company. Globalisation is the ongoing process where barriers between countries are reduced and as a result they lose their cultural ways, opening up for trade and business with other countries. This allows the transfer of many things including people, goods, money and knowledge. 

This website explains many of the features of globalisation and its impacts. 

After you have read this website there is a poll at the bottom of the "Evaluation" page that asks you if globalisation is good or bad for society.
