What is the Blue Economy?
  • Description

    A world without waste... Is this really possible? Idriss Aberkane will explain us what are the solutions.

    An imaginary universe would mean the absence of waste. However, we all know this is humanly impossible. Still, nature has its ways into showing us how to change this fact.We can make waste meaningful and turn it into something beautiful solely by imitating nature in our entrepreneurship and by considering any waste as potential food.

    "Imagine that the next time when you wanted to see waste you had to take your kids to the museum…"

    "What if we used our nuclear waste to feed mushrooms? It turns out this is possible."

    "Any waste is potential food and this idea of systematically consider waste as potential food is called blue economy and believe me, it’s a game changer of 21st century."

What is the Knowledge Economy?
  • Description

    Idriss Aberkane tells us how to share our own resources without losing any of them because knowledge is infinite.

    Utopia presents endless possibilities for all humans, and as such, all people have purchasing power. Nonetheless, this is not yet possible due to the limited nature of resources. However, there is one resource which is infinite and that is Knowledge. It can be repaid with its own capital- tension multiplied by time in the completely new economic paradigm. Everybody, from their birth has purchasing power in a knowledge economy. And this is the most beautiful consequence of this new paradigm.

    "Everybody has purchasing power at birth in a knowledge economy."

What is Biomimicry?
  • Description

    Nature is more a source of knowledge than a source of resources.

    Imagine you`ve been living in a room for generations. That all of your ancestors have been living in the same room for ages. This room has a name, it`s called nature. Idriss ABERKANE argues that nature has always been the most remarkable library, but we were just unable to figure it out.

    "Study the rain forest, and discover that it's actually a pharmacy. Natives can read the library of Nature."

What is the Peace-Industrial Complex?
  • Description

    Nowadays, and for at least 5,000 years, war is the biggest parasite for humanity, and infects us. Is there really a cure against this destruction of humanity? That is what Idriss Aberkane wants to show us.

    Do you think that in times of conflict humans use the war or end up as marionettes of it? On the other hand, have you ever heard about concepts such as weapons of mass construction? As a pandane to the war industrial complex, a new type of concept emerged - the peace industrial complex. Idriss Aberkane gives us a very interesting account of war, peace and humans' place in it.

    "There is another such parasite that I want to tell you about today, which is much more deadly, much more lethal. It has been infecting humanity for at least 5,000 years, and just like this parasite, it takes no side, infects winners and losers alike. Always wins. This parasite is war."

    "War hijacks the best minds and the best resources."

    "We need the moral equivalent of war, and the moral equivalent of war is gonna be uniting our efforts to build and not destroy."

    "Is humanity using war, or is war using us?"
