Research covers the study of old technologies and approaches towards sustainable building, plant/tree medicines and non-timber forest products, ways of maintaining water purity and harvesting rainwater, urban farming and energy efficient lifestyle. Implementing these techniques into the framework of our society, will cause an economic awakening. A shifting to new realizations that the current stream contains much waste and unproductivity, which can change by harmonizing old and new technologies. Knowing how to apply these in modern life, is essential for the ecological economic growth of the future. It is a way of thinking, within all sectors, to enhance not only peoples’ daily lives and atmosphere, but the self-reliance and health of the nation itself.
The study highlights the importance of the art of building with stone for sustainable housing and tourism development; while the usage of trees and herbs provides not only healing benefits but also business opportunities. The health of the country is as good as the purity of its water, in so many places there is little or no water, when the rain water provides an abundance of this vital source, but only when it can be collected and stored by proper facilities. Urban farming connects the new generation back to nature and gives knowledge of food production within industrialized society. With the mentioned tools, we can set an ever-increasing long-term goal to sustainable economic growth.
