Solar cells are outdated. Today the scientists experiment with artificial leaves that produce hydrogen with the help of solar energy. They also try to air-condition whole cities following the example of the thermal system of termite mounds. This film shows how our energy problems might be resolved if we looked at nature. No matter whether it concerns the states of the ants, herds of white tailed gnus or working bees, it is never the question about the physical construction alone that makes nature become so incredibly efficient. What really counts is the way information flows are organized and adapted to the respective conditions.
