Getting involved yourself

A valuable source of inspiration

Biomimicry and “bio-inspiration” (some researchers consider that we do not copy nature but are inspired by it) are approaches that consist in studying nature in its innumerable forms (animals, plants, fungi, micro-organisms, ecosystems). They offer the possibility of changing the way we grow or raise organisms, make materials, store information, heal ourselves or produce energy.

Coral reefs, because they are extremely productive communities, rich in biodiversity and the territory of expression of a multitude of chemical mediators, constitute a precious source of inspiration in terms of health, for our contemporary cities in search of effective and sustainable solutions.
