Innovation and Sustainability by Seeking Synergies with Nature

Sustainability of all human activities requires goods and services from nature.

For engineering to contribute to sustainable development, its paradigm needs to shift from taking nature for granted to learning from and respecting nature.

This talk will describe efforts toward such a paradigm shift by developing a sustainable engineering that explicitly includes ecosystems in its decision boundary and develops synergistic networks of technological and ecological systems at multiple scales.
