About Collective Routes; We are inspired by birds’ collective behavior, shown in the murmuration phenomena. Therefore it is reflected in our approach, practices, and even our logo!
The murmuration phenomena happen when hundreds, sometimes thousands, of starlings fly together in highly coordinated patterns, showing a remarkable ability to maintain cohesion as a group in highly uncertain environments. Scientists still can not understand why it happens and how it happens. Yet it happens in smooth and complex patterns that perform one of nature’s most significant spectacular phenomena in the world. Likewise, we see social change as a spectacular human phenomenon that is collective, cohesive, complex, and informed.
