On 17 November 2013 Des Moines Register reported: 'Maharishi University of Management here set out three years ago to build a new classroom building for its Sustainable Living program that lived up to the department's mission. The finished product may be the greenest building in Iowa.' It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of environment.
The article accompanies another in the Register's Opinion section by editorial writer Rox Laird, about the town of Fairfield, Iowa, USA, home of Maharishi University of Management.

'The building is constructed of compressed-earthen blocks manufactured by students on site. . . . It generates more energy than it consumes. . . . Daylight supplies two-thirds of light in classrooms and offices during the day. . . .
'Besides employing nearly every imaginable green building technique, the Sustainable Living Center design follows the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture, an ancient design philosophy from India that puts buildings in harmony with nature. It is hard to imagine a building that does a better job of meeting that goal.'
