Harmonizing Humanity with Nature: The Future of Regenerative Economies 🌎🌍🌏

John and Rica discuss the concept of survival, intrinsic to human nature and playing a pivotal role in the evolving dynamics of capitalism, especially as we begin to acknowledge the intrinsic value of nature. This shift is not only about recognizing natural resources but also about valuing humans as an integral part of the natural ecosystem. The transition towards a regenerative economy, one that can flourish and sustain itself on a global scale, hinges on this very principle.

A sustainable future calls for a system of systems, where both the environment and human societies thrive. It's about planning for the long-term - not just five or two years, but for generations to come.
