More and more people seek
a place for holidays and recreation and even for work in a natural setting, making the experience that staying
in nature has a truly revitalizing effect, that it is relaxing, inspiring, balancing. Nature provides a counterbalance to the digital world and the challenging pace of modern life.
Yet, we have to come to understand that "nature" is more than the green space around accommodations and resorts, that it is NOT JUST THE STAGE DESIGN for relaxing holidays and retreats, that nature is complex and
Nature provides resources and can cure - but will hard hit on our lives and the living conditions on earth, if too late
mankind will come to understand that nature has to be explored wisely and preserved carefully.
The Responsability for Sustainability
If we want nature to remain our lifeline and not to transform into a source and cause of endless disaster, there is no escape. We MUST
consider the "sustainability issue" a very serious task for the present and future generations, and accept the and continous challenge to think deep and work hard on strategies and practices for sustainable development to become
a mainstream paradigm.
This challenge embraces ecological, financial, social and behavioural dimensions, and touches
politics, institutions, enterprises, societies as a whole and, last but not least, the individual options and actions of each and everyone alike.
