In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at biomimicry. Specifically how biomimicry can not only lead to nature-inspired design for architecture and materials, but also for better relationships, activism, and communities. I draw upon adrienne maree brown's emergent strategy in order to show that nature and the environment can show us how to best navigate a complicated social world.

Nano Imprint technology and its importance to producing structures and textures that are found in nature and can be applied to uses such as achieving color without relying on chemical dyes.
One of three winners in the 2010 L'oreal for Women in Science Fellowship, Dr. Low Hong Yee has an aspiration to advance her research work into industrialization, and is currently leading an Industrial Consortium on Nanoimprint Technology.
The film follows Rajendra Singh, an Indian government official gone rogue, on a 40-day pilgrimage down India’s once pristine Ganges river. Across the globe in northern Canada, Eriel Deranger mounts her own “David and Goliath” struggle against the world’s largest industrial development, the Tar Sands, an oil deposit larger than the state of Florida. And in Australia, inventor and entrepreneur Jay Harman searches for investors willing to risk millions on his conviction that nature’s own systems hold the key to our world’s ecological problems
We need to move from one-way systems to ones that create cycles - recycling as it is practiced in our natural systems. Canadian Lehna Malmkvist reviews some projects to demonstrate what she is talking about and what has been learned. This is her speech at TEDXBerlin in March of 2012.
