The notion I'm going to deal with is space and exchanges. We can define this notion:

space is virtual or physical territories and an exchange is an acte of giving and receiving something else in retorn. To illustrate this notion, I will talk about global cities. Cities can be considered as global, if they have a impact on the world.

Now, the question is What impact do global cities have on people’s everyday lives? My presentation will fall into two parts. First i'm going to talk about Singapore and then Beijing.

To start Singapore is also named the Lion city, which was before a very poor city but this city have emerged thanks to the development on high-quality school, public services and health care. Now Singapore has become a modern country. The diversity of the population is due to his economics hub which attracts foreigners.More over we studied a picture which represent a t-shirt sold in Singapore. The t-shirt is covered by nine ban signs, so it's forbidden to do many things in Singapore like using chewing gum or smoking. Singapore is one of the cleanest city in the world. Singapore is a «fine» city because if people don't respect the law they are finned of 1,000 dollars and i think that it's excessive. So the city is very strict and the freedom are limitid. We can say that global cities like Singapore wants to promote and respect the invironment with the laws.

And Beijing is the capital of China. Beijing is the ninth in global cities ranking, for it’s economy and human capital. For his economic sector, it had 600 international companies, including 26 Fortune Global 500 companies in his business district. Moreover, Beijing Airport is the first airport in Asia and the second airport in the world. For his humain capital sector, Beijing had 21 million inhabitants. And each year, it attracts many foreigners, for works and studies. But Beijing is known for his censorship and his pollution. The level of censorship is high, because a quarter of foreign media in China can’t be broadcast. People don’t have access to western sites. Beijing is the 4th most polluted city, but he’s trying to make progress in this field, by participating in the COP Conferences.

To conclude, we can say that global cities has brought a wealth of culture, linguistic and ethnic diversity and presents advantages but also drawbacks. However Global cities have to solve problems of pollution. More and more cities pollute the environment and generate global warming. However cities try to find solutions to reduce pollution to live in a better world.
