     Before talking about the notion of Space and Exchange, I’m going to give you a general definition of it.

Space represents lots of things like Locations of everyday (School and Home), Areas (Beaches and Mountains) or again Countries and Cities (United States, Great Britain).

As for the word Exchange, it represents humans and familiar relationship but also economical and political exchange, as for exemple economical exchange between the European Union and Canada.

It also refers to the communication like Internet, media or phone.

It must be to notice that evolution of communication since Antiquity to today has totally changed the movement, movement of objects but also the moving of people in the world.  

For example, artifacts which have moved during a war or a epoch.

Workers with different origins and background can lead to competition (concurrence) & discrimination

Some workers reject others according to / because of their culture & religion, in a diverse workplace, some may feel superior to others and try to dominate them, manipulate them, harass them

Some workers coming from higher social classes may think they are “better” more intelligent, more skilled just because they are richer and studied longer

        I think it would not be difficult to work with someone “special”, different from me, because I look beyond appearances, being open minded /did/ and I think it’s beneficial to be diverse, different. Everyone needs to understand everybody is different but we are all equal in certain ways and all have potentials.
