" Travel and multidisciplinary expeditions have helped me to appreciate the value of nature inspired knowledge and technology of ancient cultures and civilizations. To recognize their legacy in today thinking, creativity, cultural customs and collective intelligence. To become a global citizen with appreciation for all cultures, traditions and nations. To approach the knowledge of our elders with a humble question: Which path you did not decide to take, and why?  Where our modern industrialized civilization missed the orientation? How would you have prevented and solved the global pressing issues we have ourselves created along the last 300 (600) years ? "
