Exploring biodiversity and natural capital in a time of climate change.
The backdrop is Durban and COP17 -- the UN Climate Change conference in December 2011. Action is the building of a unique horticultural art piece. The message is biodiversity, technology, and the human spirit. This is the "Living Beehive", a sophisticated steel structure based on the traditional Zulu beehive hut, and clad with a 3-dimensional garden of indigenous plants. It is an enchanting space for calm and creative thoughts. Some deep thinking delegates to COP17 visit the Beehive and share their perspectives on its symbolism, the value of healthy ecosystems, and human aspiration.
