Significance for science
Previous analyses confirm the fact that creative social groups without doubt have an effect on the regional development, although their empirical effect would be hard to verify. With this reason we will compare the levels of creative occupations with some other socio-economic indicators: the economic specialization of a geographical area, the employment level (regarding research and technologically challenging activities), the growth of business enterprises, investments, mobility, public provision index, cultural opportunity index, etc. Some previous analyses point to the positive correlation between the percentage of creative occupations and the innovative infrastructure, measured with the number of patents per inhabitant. The geographical extent of human potentials is one of the key stimulators of creativity as well as social development as such. Connected with them are important socio-economic effects as well as regional disparities within the landscape. The main focus was on studying basic characteristics of economic-geographical and socio-geographical transformation of the society, which is, as the main factor of the contemporary social development, represented by the creative environment
Significance for the country
Today's highly developed industrial countries have reached a turning point about how to establish and maintain a new creative economic system. Work intensive productions are moving to areas with a less costly workforce or their business is completely taken over by automated machines. Work and money don't ensure a higher economic development, seeing that it is the creativity which is the main force of economic growth in developed countries. Human resources or creative occupations are a potential, which is formed by the entire nation's population, which with its occupational structure contributes to this potential. Knowledge is usually not identical with creativity. The transformation of social processes, related to the raising of the living standards demands a necessary reassessment of social aims. Developmental planning in Slovenia still hasn't responded to these new challenges with appropriate measures. Social, economic and settlement systems are the result of the development in the recent past (within different technical-technological and socio-economic possibilities) and reflect contemporary economic, social and natural conditions. Although we still don't possess the comprehensive results of the analyses, which would objectively determine which elements of socio-spatial organization are in these new circumstances seen as problematic and which are not. Nevertheless numerous current processes draw attention to the fact that we should start thinking about new ways of landscape spatial organization. The proposed basic geographic research will thus provide direct interdisciplinary applicability in planning, especially in the planning of regional development. The research project »Geography of human resources« has, due to the studying of contemporary processes, along with a scientific also a practical meaning. It contributes significantly to the education, as it leads to better understanding of regional, political, cultural and other principles in Slovenia as well throughout the world. That's also why studying of contemporary and complex research in Slovenia is necessary, as it ensures a continual education of proper workforce with including it in national and international research projects, which also enables the comparison to foreign approaches. This results in establishing the basic knowledge about the complexity of the discipline, of forming individual methodological approaches and professional experience when dealing with spatial issues at the national and local levels, and ensures proper education for the expert workforce for conducting complex applicative research. Geographical studies of human resources represent the basis for further research of related disciplines (economy, sociology, etc.) as well as a basis for acknowledging and dealing with regional conflicts, regional planning, political decision-making, general education, etc. The correlation is most explicit when developing regional, spatial, economic and education policies. Contemporary geographical research is connected to the studying of the correlation between the social and the economic development. Geographers define sustainable development within the context of economy globalization and the accompanying technological changes, as well as the main economic, demographic, settlement and environmental trends. These trends are seen in studying of natural resources, special cultural and regional features and in the changes within the system of social values as well as in the functional- and capacity efficiency of the natural balance.
