open_resource magazine n°6

Towards a bio-inspired future

open_resource magazine is a 6-monthly publication, dedicated to the resource revolution. A revolution that, much like the industrial revolution in the past, is profoundly changing our lifestyle, our behaviour as consumers and our modes of production. The world is growing, so it is essential, right now, to adopt a radically new approach based upon the circular management of our increasingly scarce resources.

SUEZ is convinced that innovation, collaboration between players and collective intelligence are the driving forces behind this change. With this magazine, SUEZ aims to promote the great thoughts and solutions proposed by all those who are imagining and conceiving the future of the resource.

In this sixth issue, SUEZ has chosen to focus on nature. Human beings and nature are inseparable and interdependent. The survival of the planet depends on striking a balance between them. But this fundamental balance is under threat from global warming, the depletion of resources and the different forms of pollution that are all caused by human activities. Threats that represent a serious danger to all living beings, despite their ingenuity and their capacity to adapt. There is an urgent need for awareness. More than ever before, protecting nature must take top priority. So why not draw inspiration from the solutions that already exist in nature, and more particularly from their forms, mechanisms and ecosystems? In this way, we will develop a circular, low-carbon economy. A model that will allow for the sustainable well-being and development of mankind, the protection of resources and the conservation of the planet.

Let’s be more imaginative and innovative than ever before, and rise to this challenge together. And therefore help the resource revolution to progress.
