New homes and the urban sprawl.
What do you think about suburbia?
As parents of the next generation, Justin and I have a growing concern for our land. Some countries have got it right and they are building 'up' - but Australia, ever in love with the quarter acre block, seems to have capital cities that are expanding instead of rising. Melbourne is one of them.
What is going to happen to our food when we use our food bowl land to live on?
Where are our indigenous animals going to go when we build structures on their dirt and bulldoze their trees?
Earth is about living and sharing - it is not meant to be a metropolis. Why don't more people reuse the houses already built and live multi-generational? Is that the very essence of reuse, recycle and sustainability?
Now I'll go outside and look at the stars.
