Take a virtual forest bath with images of some of the most beautiful trees on Earth. Then, check out a proposal from the George Mason University 2014 Cameron Rian Hays Outside the Box Competition that presents a vision for protected intersections for bicyclists. What do you think? Finally, meet Akira Miyawaki, the director of the Japanese Center for International Studies in Ecology, who is taking an all-natural approach to disaster prevention: growing a 40 million tree Great Wall of Forest.
