Details The miracle of nature is that whenever there has been a challenge, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it. There are just over 8.7 million described plants and animals on Earth which are essentially individual science experiments, perpetually testing out new ways of doing things in order to find a better way. There is no doubt that we have much to learn from this 4.85 billion years of natural capital accumulation. Since humans live under the same laws of nature and under the same conditions, it makes sense that we learn from the inner workings of the natural world.

Join Jonathan Leeming on a practical exploration of natural world, and discover the inspiration that will help us solve the challenges of our time.

Copies of Jonathan's books will be available for purchase at this event. They can also be purchased online when making a free booking for the event.
