20.07.2017 : Marco Polo

In Europe the most famous name connected with the Silk Road is the Venetian merchant Marco Polo (1254 - 1324). But Dr.Francis Wood from the British Museum in London does question if Marco Polo had ever been in China; she believes that he traveled only up to Constantinople and everything else is fiction! For sure his reports became only well-known in 1558 - 234 years after his death.

In his notes dictated to Rusticello from Pisa with whom he shared for 10 months a prison cell in Genoa he neither mentioned the Great Wall or the Chinese pottery nor the crippled feet of the Chinese women at that time. Therefore the thesis is that he got his China information from people from Far East for whom the Wall, the pottery, the feet were so common that it was not worth to be mentioned. Scientific fact is too that over the centuries the Marco Polo story increased by each new edition. More about the Silk Road at AEUC (Link).

There is no other city in the world which over thousands of years is an example for change/urban revitalization like Byzanz (Greek Empire), Konstantinopel (Roman Empire), Stanbul (Osman Empire) and today called Istanbul - being the bridge between Orient and Okzident as like as it was already in the times of the historical SILK ROAD .

The European Retail Academy welcomes the opening of the Expo Astana with the topic of Future Energy! By this contribution of Kazakhstan devoting its focus to CO2-emissions and the Global Climate Change it demonstrates its leadership for a better Global House of Harmony.

The European Retail Academy started its Global Green University (Link) after a student trip from Yekaterinburg/Russia to Kazakhstan's Astana Economic Forum in 2013. The students of the World Economic Youth Forum demanded in an official declaration - drafted together with Prof.Dr.M.Fedorov and Prof.Dr.B.Hallier - from politics more attention to green issues. In 2013 the first Peace Nobel Laureate to sign also that declaration was Prof.Dr. Rae Kwon Chung from Korea. Prof.Hallier will promote in 2017 those ideas by a speech at the Astana Economic Forum about a necessary new equilibrium for economics - connected with ecology and ethics: even giving the ECOLOGY the dominant role in that triangle (Presentation).
