Learning from Nature

"We have much to learn from the ways that ants solve problems without anyone in charge, using simple interactions. They may provide innovative ideas for the systems that we create, and there may even be interesting lessons for human interaction"
Professsor Deborah Gordon, Stanford University
Each year, business leaders, politicians and economists join together in the Swiss mountains at the World Economic forum to discuss ideas committed to improving the state of the world by shaping global, regional, and industry agendas. The think-tanks, forums and conferences engage debate around how we can change social and global patterns of thinking and business for positive. In recent years, many discussions around slowing climate change and learning from nature, including in 2015, where academics turned to humble ants for inspiration.
