The "learning from nature" video/television project, using the physical properties behind natural phenomena and their observation to illustrate how products & processes draw on what we learn from the natural world.

Objective

This proposal is for the production and dissemination of a half-hour video programme, with broadcast potential, showing the wide range of roles physics plays in understanding natural phenomena and applying this knowledge in new products and processes that affect people's lives. The video would be for the general public. Dissemination would be at two levels; via contacts in different countries of the European Physical Society for education groups and opinion formers, and via media contacts for potential broadcast and for publicity. The video would cover phenomena such as ocean effects, the sun, lightning and earthquakes and show how research at a European level and across Europe is playing a major role in measuring and understanding phenomena, and then by offering models helps us to improve our world. Living organisms and the environment also provide models for application.
