Over the past several years there has been a growing awareness of the need for humanity to reverse the destructive trends of modern industrialization and embrace a more holistic, harmonious and sustainable legacy for future generations.
Worldwide, the largest industry on earth is building construction. Even in North America, the construction industry is double the size of the auto industry, which is the second largest industry in the USA.
The most comprehensive and focused body of knowledge that examines the delicate balance between human health and the built environment is called Bau-Biologie (Building Biology). Through the International Institute for Bau-Biologie & Ecology, Inc., a world wide network of Building Biology training centers have been established with the expressed goal of creating this more holistic, harmonious and sustainable habitat for humans on earth.
