« Our cities are thoughtfully designed to inspire life and the human spirit, and give people the opportunity to experience nature with little to no impact on the environment; we use solar and wind energy, reuse and recycle, and we protect the natural habitats of other living creatures. All nations, governing bodies and business around the world have united in full partnership such that humanity is now living in harmony with nature and other living beings. »
