There are many challenges in the built environment today.

Global warming, a chance to reset development paradigm 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The United Nations has marked April 22 as the International Mother Earth Day, and this year the theme is "Environmental and Climate literacy." Literacy, which refers to the knowledge-status of a person, drives change. At this juncture, the Mother Earth is stressed from overuse and pollution.
