This takes us to the context in which the green building professionals have to work and prove their mettle.
Most of us live in a certain time and space in which modernity, rather than tradition, is the norm. We have made giant strides and progress in our way of living. While the developments made in all fields have made our lives more comfortable and convenient, this has also created some negative effects. We have embraced science wholeheartedly in our progress, yet we have ignored some of the lessons it gives us. To be fair, we need modern conveniences, yet we cannot and should not ignore traditional wisdom based on fundamental principles of nature. There is a balancing act that is not easy.
