The Nature Prevails platform complements the Soil Health and Water Use | Toxicity platforms. Within the Nature Prevails premise, the Earth heals herself and nurtures renewed life forms, no matter the calamity caused by humans or extraterrestrial activities.
During the 2020 COVID-19 global pandemic quarantines, citizens witnessed an immediate impact of reduced human activity via clearer skies, orchestras of bird songs, and the roaming of wild animals in urban and rural parks. The experiences were a glimpse of how quickly the natural world resumes when human activity subsides.
According to the November 2019 Science Alert article, Are We Really in a 6th Mass Extinction? Here’s The Science, current conditions indicate that the Earth’s Holocene extinction, or sixth mass extinction, is well underway. From the article:
A mass extinction is usually defined as a loss of about three quarters of all species in existence across the entire Earth over a “short” geological period of time. Given the vast amount of time since life first evolved on the planet, “short” is defined as anything less than 2.8 million years.
… The Earth is currently experiencing an extinction crisis largely due to the exploitation of the planet by people.
Though life as we know it on planet Earth is endangered, Nature always prevails and will simply nurture and embrace new life forms if the existing species perish.
With a commitment to align work with Nature, Ei defined The Principles of Nature with three broad categories:
- Dynamic Balance & Nutrition Cycles
- Necessity of Cover & Ability to Roam
Beyond the environment-related activity within in each category, societal systems including economic structures, financial markets, urban design to name a few also align within and are impacted by The Principles of Nature.
The Ei Regenerative Working Group (RWG) serves as the “action arm” within the Nature Prevails platform; the RiA Magazine article, Global Thought Leaders Embrace Regenerative Land Economics, introduces the RWG.
One of the initial Nature Prevails tasks is to classify each of the identified topics within the respective RWG Focus Areas within The Principles of Nature’s three broad categories.
