Aims: The main purpose of the current study is to introduce forests and wild-life environment as a source of endless learning and of course in harmony with nature and natural structures to conceive, lead, guidance, implement and manage the regional planning system. A type of regional planning system that achieves the UN Millennium Development Goals with a deep understanding of ecosystem cultural services.
Instruments & Methods: Research methodology is to explore the evidence of the selected case studies from among the emerging dominant exemplars of low-tech development projects in order to outline significant lessons from nature. “Logical argumentation” is selected as research strategy which is going to be developed by deductive approach and FGD (Focus Group Discussion) and snowball sampling in the cases of the forests and the wild-life environment.
Findings: Nature, wild-life and ecosystem includes invaluable source of inspiration. Nature as a source of hidden geometry emphasizes on form and structure, management and process, cultural and spiritual, and recycling and upcycling.
Conclusion: It is essential to sift to low-tech, green economy and low impact planning for biophilic regional planning; which includes holistic and comprehensive approach, planning for CES for better green economy, low-tech and soft development for environmentally-sensitive areas based on local circumstances, and classification of cultural services in natural ecosystems and reorganizing cultural benefits of ecosystem on the basis of environmental education program.
