A Life on Our Planet – David Attenborough

“We must rewild the world.”

David Attenborough’s latest book ” A Life on Our Planet – My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future” explores some of the most important challenges that face our planet. He writes about the changes that have taken place during his life and he describes some of the biggest mistakes that we have made.

Also, David has a strong message about hope for a brighter future and he explores ways that we can act now so that we can put it right.

I was happy to read that Biomimicry is mentioned as a way to find solutions to some of the problems that faces us.

”Biologist Janine Benysus, co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute, wishing to provoke the new green approach to city planning, has set all cities a challenge. She suggests that, since a city occupies spaces that was once natural habit, it should at least equal that habitat in terms of the environmental services that it once provided – the solar energy it generated, the fertility it added to the sois, the volume of air it cleaned, the water it produced, the carbon that it captured and the biodiversity it hosted. Architects appear keen to take on her challenge.”

It is possible to acheive much more if we work together. Let’s start now.

An important book. Warmly recommended.
