Comments Off on How Can Nature Inspire Smarter Companies? Help Kickstart This Book!

Regular Inhabitat readers will know and love our own Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker , who writes our Biomimicry Manual series . Dr. Woolley-Barker has been writing a bio-inspired book all about how nature would run a company, called Super Organizations: Nature’s Game-Changing Guide To Faster, Smarter, More Valuable Companies . The book talks about how nature’s collaborators like ant colonies and bee hives work together to create organizations and how we can learn from them to better our own. But in order to get the book off the ground, Dr. Woolley-Barker is looking for a little help. Her Kickstarter campaign ends in just four days and is just a few hundred dollars short of its final goal. Help make this brilliant book a reality – and maybe even change the way we think about running our companies – by making a donation at Kickstarter  .

It’s cold outside. I forgot my gloves and now it’s time to go. The arrestees practice outside the church , locking themselves into their lockboxes, as I pretend a nearby  flowering  plant is a security guard. I’m the distraction and I need to give them at least 30 seconds or it won’t work. After practicing the scenario, we get into our cars and head to the parking garage to try it for real. We’re about to join a huge protest, and things could get intense.
