It’s our pleasure to announce the first issue of the Next Nature Magazine. Indeed, a good old fashioned magazine. Next Nature Magazine presents 176 pages of thought-provoking content that gives you the ideas, tools and perspectives to face our world with.
Our central question: “Are we living in a superorganism?” Because what does it mean to live in an ecosystem of technology? We are being encapsulated in a superstructure that we must learn to understand. And there are yet many other species that exercise their own influence; viral microorganisms, an internet of trees and artificial intelligence—each with their own perspective. What can we learn from each other? That’s what the magazine is about.
What can you expect?
