Humans, business people in particular, can learn so much from nature to develop sustainable solutions based on how planet earth has adapted to survive over billions of years, according to Michael Pawlyn, one of the world’s leading environment speakers.
The process of ‘asking nature’s advice a normal part of everyday inventing’ is called biomimicry and Pawlyn, described as an architect inspired by nature – is a pioneer in the field. He has led the way in helping architects to build a world of ‘sustainable beauty’ using what he calls nature’s genius. This means looking at how natural structures work so successfully and with minimum use of energy and comparing it with man-made structures which tend to take their toll on the environment and be less than 100 per cent successful.
As an environment speaker, Michael Pawlyn, who is a director of the architecture practice Exploration and author of the book A Biomimicry in Architecture has wowed audiences around the world with his talks on how living systems can inspire human builders and businesses. In one recent talk he explained why ecosystem thinking “is key to a regenerative circular economy”.
By copying nature’s solutions through biomimicry, human beings will be able to bring in a new era of design and business that will benefit the planet and everybody on it. Claiming that the earth has gone through a 3.8bn-year research and development phase, Pawlyn argues that it makes perfect sense to use that amount of “investment” rather than attempt to develop solutions in isolation.
