Señorita Janine Benyus: gives an insight in 12 sustainable design ideas from nature, talks about mimicking the nature in a sustainable futuristic way, it’s very inspiring and I totally recommend it.

A recap of the 12 points:
1.self-assembly (pearl, computers without carcinogens, lenses from seawater)
2.CO2 as feedstock
3.solar transformation
4.power of shape (fins, color without pigments, clean without detergents)
5.quenching thirst (water from air)
6.metals without mineral
7.green chemistry (spider web)
8.timed degradation (mussel shell)
9.resilience and healing (vaccines)
10.sensing responding (locust won’t collide)
11.growing fertility
12.life creates condition conducive to life
