A portal to the wisdom nature holds

“When we Ask Nature, first we quiet our human cleverness. Then we ask, and then we listen. The answer is the echo that bounces off of the land herself. With the solution in hand, we always end the circle by saying thank you.” – Janine Benyus

The living world holds answers for us to create a more resilient, regenerative, and beautiful world. Our planet-mates, the fantastic meshwork of plants, animals, and microbes, have done billions of years of research and development.

The time is now to collaborate with nature to design this world for the future of all species. It begins with observing and listening deeply, and reconnecting to nature’s wisdom by asking, “How does nature solve this?”

Ask Nature is a project of the Biomimicry Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the practice of looking to nature for inspiration to solve design problems in a regenerative way.
