Their imaginative answer--covering everything from the cooling strategies employed at Cambodia's ancient temple city of Angkor Wat to the use of cutting-edge eco-friendly mushroom board as a replacement for Styrofoam--show the way to our future success on earth and begin a much-needed dialogue about what we can realistically accomplish in the decades ahead.
