Resumen. Unlike the exponential increase in digital information, every year we lose globally the bio-information contained in the DNA of the multiple species that become extinct due to human actions, specially by activities such as construction, agriculture, transport, and manufacturing, that directly affect the increase of global warming. The digital information vs. bio-information appear to travel on opposite growth curves.
The loss of biodiversity in our planet is the consequence of a predatory economic model, which extracts raw materials and gives back contamination. How to strengthen the development of a regenerative and collaborative economy, based on the co-creation of value from bio-information, which stimulates and encourages the increase of local and global biodiversity? Regenerative Manufacturing | Beyond the 4th Industrial Revolution is a space to reflect on the opportunities offered by bio and digital technologies to develop a new generation of design and manufacturing models that increase the biodiversity of the planet.
