Michelle Yeoh Introduces Tariq Al-Olaimy


Nature has proven that we can’t beat it - so we better join it.

Tariq Al-Olaimy calls it “partnering with nature,” to find solutions that benefit both people and planet. It’s a strategy that requires both an understanding of our planet’s complex systems, and a healthy dose of humility. 

We talked to Mr. Al-Olaimy about the open source innovations of nature, how biomimicry allows us to leverage millenia of research and development, and how the climate crisis is also a spiritual crisis.
