Janine Benyus on Redesigning Society Based on Nature /71
The Earth is some 3.8 billion years old. There are systems and structures in place that have withstood the test of time, trials and errors that exist in the deepest time. This week’s podcast guest, Janine Benyus, is a pioneer in the school of thought known as Biomimicry. The only way to survive is to learn from life how to be life. Life has learned how to create soil, clean air, water, cycle nutrients. Life, remarkably, creates conditions to produce more life, so nature is our model and our mentor. . :: In this time, we are being asked to abandon reductionist science and hyper individualism that perpetuate the cannibalistic systems of our societal workings. Janine invites us to explore systems conducive to creating more life. . :: Everything we do must create conditions conducive to life, if we want to stick around here. Janine encourages us to live by the questions, “What would nature do here?” And, “What wouldn’t nature do here?”. :: This Thursday, listen to Janine expound upon the power of Biomimicry as a force for regeneration. .
