Nature-based solutions “sprout” from the premises that some societal challenges stem from human activities that have failed to recognize ecological limitations and the interdependent role of humans as Nature; and that sustainable alternatives to those activities can be found by looking to nature for design inspiration and process knowledge. They therefore involve the innovative application of knowledge about nature, inspired and supported by nature, and they maintain and enhance natural capital and our inter-relationship with the ecosystems we inhabit

In this space we will explore a diversity of this Nature Based Design Frameworks that are being used around the globe to approach the challenges of modern society.

It will help to bring clarity between the wording, strategies and techniques used for Biophilia, Biomimicry, Regeneration, Resilience and Permaculture
