Most of us used to take delight in watching birds paying us a visit in our very own habitats during our childhood, when today's cities were still attractive enough for nature to cast its beautiful spell with changing seasons, colors, flowers and more. However, all such pleasures of nature are strangers to our cities now. It's something that we have done ourselves, still doing, depriving our younger generations of all such pleasure.

The greater irony is, we seek solace in the virtual worlds. Our bird song comes from MP3s, our greenery in screensavers. And tweet on the web mimicking nature. As we use these products, as we live a synthetic life, we need to think, rethink how our life is affecting our world, our Nature. As creative people, it's time we thought about how our creations, the products and services we create and we use impact our world.

Time we thought about how our design can be sustainable, something that matches the needs to the resources in the most effective way possible.
