Twenty-five years ago, pictures of our planet taken by NASA showed how our living biosphere captures the daily shower of free photons from the Sun teaching us that we did not need to dig in the Earth’s crust for our energy but could mimic the technology developed by plants – photosynthesis – and harvest those free photons, not only in the plants that provide our daily food, but also directly in solar collectors, from wind, water and mimicking the radical efficiency of Nature’s productivity.

Fast forward to 2013 and Ethical Markets’ Green Transition Scorecard reported that $4.1 trillion of biomimicryprivate investment is now at work growing a greener, cleaner, knowledge-richer economy.

And now, markets and their metrics are slowly reforming to catch up with these new realities with a recent survey conducted in 11 countries showing that the public understands the need for correcting GDP to include health, education, poverty gaps and environmental quality.

Economist and Futurist Hazel Henderson takes stock of these emerging metrics and introduces us to the recently launched Principles of Ethical Biomimcry Finance, on Talkback.

What would compel someone like David Haskell to lead an organization that is willing to go into the most dangerous places on earth to see to the needs of those trapped in those locations? What drives a woman like Karen Tse to end torture in 32 nations by training local public defenders to uphold the humanity of those accused?

What inspired Bart Weetjens to even think he could train giant rats to be the changesniff out land mines in Africa and then accomplish this task saving thousands of lives threatened by this treachery?

So, what is it that informs these entrepreneurs’ values, motivation and inspiration? Ron Schultz believes it is the Shambhala Principle. In a fascinating editorial, he decodes the Principle and suggests that we all better learn how to work with “rugged collaborationism” on Talkback.
