Multidisciplinary Thinking

AEGIS is a multidisciplinary organization, exploring many different directions. This means that every step of the way we embrace practices, methodologies and projects that fit together in order to create a holistic result. 
This rich approach makes our work interesting every day, but it also brings many challenges our way. We do our best in order to uphold our standards, our beliefs and our values but we can always do better.
Listed below, you will find our most precious values and all the views we live by. If you see ways in which we can improve, we encourage you to reach out to us. What helps us most is when our community participates in what we do or finds ways to suggest new tools and solutions that could bring us closer to our ideals in everything we do.
What We Believe In

Biomimicry

For our organization, biomimicry is a fundamental framework. In everything we do, we aspire to approach problem-solving through first principles.
Nature and physics are the ultimate sources of logic that serve to inspire humanity beyond the capacity of any culture or leadership. Only by linking our creation to nature can we transform our nations into truly regenerative and symbiotic ecosystems.

Supportive Communities

Futures Literacy

We are creating pieces of future by supporting projects and groups that are making a difference. Beyond technological solutions, it is through communities that we see the future. It is important to us that more people think of the future and learn to understand what is unfolding in order to contribute and gain hope.

Sustainable Development

Permaculture

We look at development through a permacultural lense. We use permacultural thinking as tool in order to develop nature-centric patterns and methodologies in what we do and advise others. Permaculture for us goes beyond agricultural application and trascends towards the development of every new environment we design or nurture.

Ethical Innovation

Facilitating the exponential growth of innovative technologies and systems that can bring ethical solutions to our world. But we do this while exploring ways in which our technological experience can enhance our long-term well-being and support our communities rather than increasing our productivity at all cost.
