www.africanraptor.co.za High up in the Maloti-Drakensberg Mountains that serrate the border between South Africa and Lesotho is a last remnant population of Bearded Vultures. With less than 400 birds left in the wild, the species is now listed as critically endangered and active conservation measures need to be implemented in order to ensure their survival. In recent history the population has suffered more than a 30% decline and are threatened by multiple factors. They collide with, or get electrocuted by power-lines. They get poisoned when ingesting poisoned bait that is put out by farmers for jackal. Their body parts are also used in the traditional muthi industry and, the latest threat looming is the proposal of wind farms in the high mountain areas of Lesotho. These massive turbines, while providing a quick and renewable form of energy, have proved lethal to flying birds utilizing the same wind corridors.
Happitecture: www.vusacollaborative.com Jonathan Edkins, CEO of Vusa Collaborative, invented Happitecture in response to a challenge set by the Urban Futures Centre of Durban University of Technology. The Happitecture study suggests a method for direct broad public engagement in advance of planning, which allows individuals to capture and immediately convey emotions and experiences reflecting the values and qualities of particular spaces and places at different times of the year. This results in a Space Happiness Index and an unfiltered record based on multiple user interpretations and opinions. The outcome is a people-generated planning brief, compiled over time, which replaces a sterile top-down development brief based on snap surveys and generalised assumptions. This is a particularly important approach in the planning and design of public spaces and urban precincts. The concept of Happitecture establishes a gathering point for individuals and disciplines to promote collaborative contributions to informed, people-centred decision making in architecture, urban design and planning. It opens the doors for "non-specialists" to participate and contribute actively to an improved shared living environment and ecology. Based on the "Gross National Happiness" Index pioneered in Bhutan, which recognises that "citizen happiness" is more important than measuring fiscal gain, Happitecture is the embodiment of harmony between place, humanity and ecology, where systems, beliefs, and individual emotions are accommodated, leading to community briefs for action.

But Fitzgerald explains that if we change our relationship with stress, it can actually be a useful tool to help us improve our lives in many ways!
