There's a large consensus in regards to the necessity of sustainable improvement. there's additionally a consensus that extensive parts of our economic system, undefined, and know-how and the lifestyles types in industrialized nations aren't susta- capable. technological know-how and expertise are generally considered as (main) factors for this case. matters during this context include the commonly low source ef- ciency, an elevated and regularly undebated technological energy, an - creased invasiveness of recent applied sciences, expanding quantities and - versity of toxins, and excessive technological dangers. nevertheless technology and expertise also are considered as (main) answer services in the direction of extra sustainability. hence the query is which sort of technology and expertise is very part of the matter, and which sort is quite part of the answer? ‘Learning from nature’ can provide a few orientation during this context. B- mimetics and bionics are extensively considered as being part of the answer.
