Would you rather live in a gloomy and sober world, devoid of color and soul?Modernization can be beneficial but nature has its own unique advantages that will benefit man.
Even with today’s advancement in technology, man can still enjoy nature intimately.
When you become aware of how beautiful a masterpiece the world around us is, you will realize the importance of preserving and enjoying nature and you will live a happier, more colorful life.
The concepts of Circular Economy and Industrial Economy filled in the gaps as the impact of discharges from industrial processes and the impact of post-consumer waste became better understood.
We are developing a deeper understanding of these impacts from the fire-hose of environmental data collected by a myriad of satellites and a growing internet of environmental sensors which provide an ever clearer picture of our whole earth impacts.
What we’re lacking now is the ability to read that data in a way which strengthens our ability to protect and enhance the systems that sustain and support our economic and social well-being.
Big data analytics and artificial intelligence will have a critical role to play as we seek to make sense of all the measurements that are supposed to make us better managers of the natural capital assets upon which our evolutionary trajectory depends.
These and other studies placed our relationship with nature under the microscope, and humanity’s impact on the Earth is now considered so profound that a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene – was proposed by scientists in 2016.
This new geological age recognises that the collective influence of humans was small before the dawn of the Industrial Revolution during the middle of the 18th century.
Towards the end of the 20th century, industry turned to nature for inspiration about how to mimic the extraordinary power of ecosystems to self-regulate.
Janine Benyus’s concept of Biomimicry sought sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature's time-tested patterns and strategies.
