Throughout human history, we’ve used biomimicry as a means to an end—to modify nature to use the planet for human needs. But more and more, we’re learning that acting as though we are apart from nature has led to some pretty dire circumstances.
If humans want to continue to live on this planet, we need to change our relationship with nature. We will need to push for policy changes that support the environment. As individuals, we also need to advocate for the changes we want to see. By voting with our dollars, we can actively participate in this shift. By imagining solutions and pushing for new technologies, we can create change.
There is still hope for a future that includes us human beings.
