Biomimcry seems like a concept that should be easily assimilated. In a nutshell, it is about finding answers to our human scale challenges by looking thoughtfully at nature’s model.
Here is a list I lifted from Janine’s book, Biomimcry, that applies profoundly to the task of creating a sustainable future for the biospshere we all depend on.
Nature runs on sunlight
Nature uses only the energy it needs
Nature fits form to function
Nature recycles everything
Nature rewards cooperation
Nature banks on diversity
Nature demands local expertise
Nature curbs excesses within
Nature taps the power of limits
Embracing these ideas offers a path forward worthy of our species…
