There are numerous methods of studying natural living based on the amount of involvement, participation and even creativity.

The fascinating thing is it is a simple fact of life now because people are conscious of it; there is a positive attitude towards nature and our connection with it; it’s an emotionally charged topic; there’s fear of”nature’s revenge” if we continue the way we do.

At the identical time we must accept that artificial development has attracted material quality of life and is an economic factor in our society.

What “natural” and “living” mean?

Natural

Conclusion
