Executive Summary Governments all over the world are today worried by the scarcity of natural resources, especially land and fossil fuels. The consumption of these resources has increased tremendously over the years, encouraged by the adoption of suburban lifestyles and rapid population increase. Suburbia is one of the major factors contributing to the scarcity of resources because it is basically an energy-intensive culture. In a suburban culture, people live far away from their places of work and have to travel daily. It means that more resources are used to travel and build office complexes in cities and family homes in suburban environments. The problem of resource scarcity can be addressed through teleworking, whereby people work remotely without necessarily having to travel to their places of work. This will reduce reliance on fossil fuels and minimize the demand for prime land to build offices.
