Sustainability is the equilibrium between living well now, and longevity for the future. Canadians’ relationship with nature is intertwined with our identity. Whether we live in a city or rural community, our country’s natural beauty shapes our collective imagination and daily lifestyle.

In this spring 2019 issue of Insight: The Art of Living, we invite you to discover the forward-thinking luxury global brands and Canadian cultural leaders who balance passion for their craft with a commitment to environmental awareness. Meet chef Julian Bentivegna, whose newly opened restaurant, Ten, synchronizes fine dining with food sustainability.

Read about fashion designer Laura Siegel, whose sustainable, ethically handcrafted clothing is produced in collaboration with Asian and Latin American artisans. We introduce you to landscape architect Joel Loblaw who designs urban gardens by re-creating nature and giving it an urban twist.

Find out too how automobile manufacturer Porsche is bridging performance and sustainability as it engineers vehicles and experiences geared to an eco-conscious future. Within these pages and at sothebysrealty.ca, browse innovative homes in Canadian communities that are enhanced by their natural settings.

This season, as nature renews itself, we encourage you to appreciate and sustain the environment that surrounds us.
