The answer lies in the fact that it is not competition rules that prevail, but cooperation rules. From scarcity and diversity, abundance and balance are generated. The keywords are cooperation, self-organization, interdependence, resilience, freedom, originality, creativity and respect born from the socio-biological behavior of this nature.

Plants and animals interact in a fusion, using only what they need resources, playing specific roles that are interconnected so that the result is the balance of the whole. A balance that is not static, but in motion, as flexibility is a virtue of nature, responding to the fact that transition is innate to life.

How to create abundance where there is a feeling of scarcity?

How to build resilience and face change positively?
