Our next guest on the Meet a Biomimic series is Nicole Isle. Nicole has a strong connection to nature and seeks to guide our communities to live and build sustainably. With a solid foundation in ecology and urban planning, she leads sustainability work at Glumac, a full-service engineering consulting firm. Nicole is also well-versed in biophilia, touching upon the human-nature connection that plays a major role in (re)thinking our space. Read on to learn more about her journey and words of advice.
A species can only thrive if its strategies are tuned to the conditions it’s in–and if it’s in beneficial relationships with others. Humans have co-existed as a species on this planet for over 200,000 years as Homo sapiens sapiens. In that time, there have been many disturbances, challenges, and tensions between and amongst us. Somehow, we have eventually learned that we are always better together than alone.
And through it all, we always asked nature for help.
