Environmentalist Paul Hawken said, “Sustainability is about stabilizing the currently disruptive relationship between Earth’s two most complex systems – human culture and the living world.” We need to transform our economic activities by pursuing sustainable agriculture and circular economy and change our work practices by promoting sustainable architecture.
