Janine Benyus: Nature's 100 Best | Watch Now | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it
37 minutes | The brilliant naturalist, author of Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature , and founder of the Biomimicry Institute, Janine Benyus , reminds us that our prime directive as living beings...
Anne Caspari's insight:

Even though this talk is a couple of years old, it is still brilliant and extremely inspiring. It is about. Let it inspire you, wether you do community work, process design, architecture, engineerering or any other profession that requires creativity. Simple basic question: what would nature do? And She has some billion years of R&D more than us. Failures went down as fossils, really cool solutions to virtually any problem are abundant around us.

I think of "sustainable" as at least what is called "resilient" here. We are not truly sustainable until we have already mitigated damages and shifted to a symbiotic relationship with nature. But in doing so, we also become thrivable, doing as nature does, creative and regenerative.

Hi Daniel and all; for this discussion I can strongly recommend Nassim Taleb's new book: Antifragile. Jean has taken that new notion into account in her description of Thrivability. Taleb makes clear distinctions: he says that antifragile goes much further than robust or resilient systems (and in this sense further than merely sustainable systems) "the obut or resilient is neither harmed nor helped by volatility and disorder, while the antifragile benefits form them." It is very worth looking into! And also here, much more than a game of words. :-)

Thrivability & the Future of Humanity | Solarium

Thrivability & the Future of Humanity | Solarium | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

So I studied biology, in search of the pattern of thriving living systems. And at the same, I studied all the theories about what makes organizations thrive, or succeed.  Now, for some reason, every biologist tells a different and very complicated story about how life works.  And the same is true in organizational theory.  But when you step back and look at them all together, you see that they're all telling the same basic story.  At every level of human activity, it’s the same simple pattern.

And this pattern suggests a very different guiding story.

So the bottom line for conscious business is life itself. As a generative design principle.

Thrivability is a nascent philosophy which is currently being co-created by a network of social innovators and change agents throughout the world to address the challenges posed above… it is a positive and inclusive vision that is much more aspirational than sustainability. If sustainability is about asking the question ‘how do we fix the mess we’ve made?’, thrivability asks ‘what kind of world do we want to live in?’…
