Natural systems are efficient, effective, and do not generate waste. We need to work with nature, not against it. It’s vital that we learn about it and from it; that we make space for its many and varied forms to thrive; and that our nature-led solutions are applied where they are most needed including cities. We support ideas that appreciate, use and/or copy nature to create similarly sustainable systems in the built environment.
Increased levels of carbon dioxide result in global warming and associated climate change. If we are to free ourselves of our dependence on carbon, then we need to change how we live. This includes our homes and places of work and play. How we feed and clean ourselves. How we move around. Our means of production of all we consume. How we deal with waste. We are interested in ideas that help us to decarbonise our society.
