STAY ALIVE IN 25 >> GROUP 5 >> GO TRANSNATURAL!
Michael Pieters, Wencke Nilsson and Muruschka Kartosonto think our future can be saved by incorporating the beauty and power of nature in our culture. We should not only live eco-friendly and be aware of what damage we do to our planet. We should respect the power of nature more, what it can produce and how it grows and sustains itself. This knowledge and power we must integrate in our lifestyle, they believe their generation should be aware of alternatives for harming materials and energy sources. Energy is in nature, it’s all around it. As the RE-generation we should reconnect with nature again, embrace and integrate it, become transnatural!
