Sustainability Workshop, Norman Foster Foundation | October 10–14, 2022
While there is an imperative to ensure human survival in the face of climate change, learning from nature’s intricate systems is crucial to ensuring a good quality life for all living things. What if the boundary between humans and ecosystems didn’t exist? What if we could transform our waste into nutrients for other organisms?
