The Green Corners Award, an initiative put on by London's Conservation Foundation, puts all city slickers on the hunt for some green beauty within a sometimes bleak urban landscape.

With the Green Corners Awards, Londoners search for lush gardens, simple windowsills, community areas and vegetable plots -- anything that brings more color and diversity to the city. Anyone can nominate a space that inspires them the most.

Implications - As globalization and urban populations continue to increase at an unprecedented rate, many individuals have developed a feeling of disconnection with nature. Businesses that are able to generate familiar outdoor experiences or transform an urban dwelling into one boasting more rural characteristics will see great returns.
