This interview was recorded 4 months ago when Occupation Wall Street was bursting out and I felt very excited of the possibilities of a Unified World of Occupiers could do, that I held back this interview to bring into the studio Auckland based NZ Occupiers and supporters so that listeners could hear directly what NZers were saying and doing, thus I put this interview on hold.
Biomimicry (from bios, meaning life, and mimesis, meaning to imitate) is a design discipline that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies, e.g., a solar cell inspired by a leaf.The core idea is that Nature, imaginative by necessity, has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with: energy, food production, climate control, non-toxic chemistry, transportation, packaging, and a whole lot more.Animals, plants, and microbes are the consummate engineers. They have found what works, what is appropriate, and most importantly, what lasts here on Earth. However, we humans have only really woken up to this in the last 20 years.
If we could only mobilise our consciousness (and media) at a global level, we would be both amazed and shocked to realize that the answers to our challenges are already embedded in nature, the same living super system that we too are deeply embedded in, except we have disconnected ourselves.Time to awaken and reconnect.Sam Stier: http://www.asknature.orgLearn more about biomimicry in video:http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/janine_benyus_shares_nature_s_designs.html
