The Nature Learner


Chris Puil Chau

The Nature Learner addresses the importance of respecting the natural world and all the life forms on our planet. We need to acknowledge the contribution of nature to technological development through biomimicry, which encompasses everything from a tiny piece of grass all the way to humans. Nature is the teacher of humanity, respecting nature should be our utmost priority. I use a website to promote this idea as it appeared to be the most effective medium to attract people’s attention.    

The role of technology is becoming more important to humanity as it leads to great advances in quality of life. It is paradoxical that the natural environment created a planet suitable for the survival of human beings, yet in recent years humans seem to be drowning in technological developments, paying less attention to the natural environment while at the same time learning from nature in order to advance technology.
