Next Natures- new book

Recently we purchased a copy of Next Natures new book. (See 1st video below)

For those of you who are reading this post but may not be aware of Next Nature , they are are group that may just challenge the way we think about Nature and how humans change it. Their main motto is; "Nature changes along with us".

The book proved to be quite thought provoking, so we decided that we should also do a quick post. The first video is their promo for the book, but the second is one of their most recent lectures with many of the key themes and examples spoken about.
Also if you are interested in this further the web site is here.... Next Nature

Lecture where Koert van Mensvoort argues our notion or nature is radically changing. Where technology and nature are traditionally seen as opposed, they now appear to merge or even trade places. Time to explore how we can design, build and live in a nature caused by people.
