The following podcast is brought to you courtesy of A World of Possibilities and The Mainstream Media Project.
Fasten your seatbelts. Now put on your thinking caps; you’ll need ‘em. And while you’re at it, tie on those wings of unfettered imagination. We’re about to enter a different kind of twilight zone. This is not your biochem class nor a biotech lab. This is biomimcry, an emerging art and science of a very different kind that uses the evolutionary genius of nature to inspire new approaches to some of our most vexing problems.
Today on A World of Possibilities, “Designing with Nature.” We’ll explore how green design is being applied to environmental challenges ranging from toxic carpets to contaminated wastewater. What are the possibilities and constraints in applying these principles more broadly to help clean up both what we use and how it’s made?
