Considering the state of today’s world, where problems are more in number than solutions, and sustainability, a dream, it is high time we tip the scales. It comes as no surprise that the only thing to have sustained itself for thousands of years, surviving its own onslaught, is nature.

Functioning in an incredibly sustained and balanced manner, nature has answers to our most complicated problems, if only we care to observe.

The most revolutionary movements were all sparked off by a single thought.

So, get ideating, drawing inspiration from nature. Amalgamate your observations and innovate to make our lives sustainable and easier.
