Biomimicry: Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor

Date:Thursday, August 27, 2009 Time:10:00 AM - 11:30 AM (Pacific Standard Time) Space is limited. Reserve your Webinar seat now at:
  • Nature as model. Biomimicry is a new science that studies Nature’s models and then imitates or takes inspiration from these designs and processes to solve human problems.
  • Nature as measure. Biomimicry uses an ecological standard to evaluate the “rightness” of our innovations.
  • Nature as mentor. Biomimicry is a new way of viewing and valuing Nature.

Biomimicry is an approach that looks to nature for effective ways to look at a system in a holistic fashion. This overview will provide some examples of how some of nature’s designs can be imitated in our products and processes to achieve optimum efficiency, and in a sustainable way. In addition, insight will be given to the Biomimicry Guild’s Functional Taxonomy, which is an organized collection of functions that covers everything that life does and what we want a design to achieve.

This presentation will showcase how using biomimicry methodologies and practices can be applied and used by individuals in a variety of settings, including, but not limited to, regulatory and non-regulatory agencies, non profits, business assistance programs, private companies, universities, etc.

You’ll hear about emerging topics in Biomimicry and how this science is being used by a wide range of sectors as they seek out ways to become more sustainable.

You’ll learn about the many businesses and organizations that have used biomimicry tools to effectively translate the wisdom of our teacher – the organisms and ecosystems of the natural world – into designs and systems that are both innovative and sustainable.
