Open Design Afrika is a proud affiliated partner of Learn Biomimicry in South Africa. Since ODA’s inception in 2013, we have promoted Biomimicry to help create a greater awareness of why nature is the master of invention and how we can learn from her to design a future world where people and the planet can thrive. Today we have the most important design brief to execute in the history of mankind – to design a future world that’s conducive to life for 10 000 generations and more in the same way that nature designs.
“Nature has successful models, processes, and systems tested and proven across 3,8 billion years, inclusive of ALL living organisms no matter their size or origin.
As Nature is the master designer of all thriving ecologies, designed to be conducive to life for 10 000 generations and more, it will be very wise to take our lead from mother nature, study her wisdom that surrounds us, and implement these learnings across all sectors of our man-made world,” says Suné Stassen, CEO of Open Design Afrika.
Jess Berliner, founder of Learn Biomimicry South Africa agrees: “Nature is an exquisite example of diversity, working in highly effective, collaborative and cooperative relationships. Everything from the largest tree to a singular human relies on the success of diversity and meaningful connections where information, energy, and resources flow freely between all its parts so that this diverse system can be aware, reactive, and resilient.”
