2. The nature of Life
For thousands of years we have depended on the ecosystems of our planet. Our increasing ecological footprint is causing severe problems, and we urgently need to find new ways to safeguard life on earth. We must ‘translate and integrate our green capital’ to make the earth a good and sustainable place to live. Many solutions, including social-economic solutions, can be found in nature. We just need to follow the resilience of nature’s design; to reflect, rethink and harmonize our behavior and our relationship with planetary boundaries, and translate them into a language everybody can understand.
