We can look to nature to lean ways of cleaning up the mess we made in the industrial revolution. thinking systemically in the design phase is a great first step. It helps us save resources and money. This century will be noted for its Restorative Revolution. The biggest financial opportunities will come from the businesses that design in accordance with the natural world.
Looking to the forest for business advice.
Forests function much like a restorative economy. The resources move full circular supporting the system in all stages of a species life. A forest ecosystem consists of all plants, animals and micro-organisms functioning together. Even the decaying matter supports the life and health of the system. Cool Hive highlights business protocols, tools, techniques and designs that are often emulating ecosystems. We can collectively evolve as we restore and improve systems already in place by helping them work in a circular restorative manner.
