Interest in biomimicry has grown tremendously over the past few years as professions ranging from architects to doctors, engineers to climate scientists look to nature for solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems. If you want to learn more about the ways that nature can help us to solve problems and revolutionize our world, then check out the Biomimicry Education Summit and first Global Conference hosted by the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute at the University of Massachusetts in Boston from June 21-33rd. This year’s program will be led by scientist, author, and Biomimicry Institute co-founder Janine Benyus, who has drawn together a team of thought-leaders to share new concepts, resources and developments in the field of biomimicry. Don’t miss out on your chance to see how these cutting-edge ideas inspired by Mother Nature can shape the future. Inhabitat will be there and we’re so excited to take part in this groundbreaking event!
The Biomimicry Education Summit will be held in conjunction with the institute’s first ever Global Conference, which will bring together those interested in applying biomimicry to issues ranging from climate change to economic development. The event will take place over three days:
Day 1: Resilient cities with leading architecture firm, HOK Day 2: 3D printing, informed by nature: with MIT and Warner Babcock Institute Day 3: Companies changing the landscape of environmental debt
Guests are invited to meet members of the Global Biomimicry Network and educators from around the world, contribute to a thought-provoking conversation on how biomimicry offers solutions to critical challenges, and gain valuable tools to build their effectiveness as a biomimicry leader. There will also be a program for those who are new to teaching biomimicry. Teachers are invited to attend a day early for an Introduction to Biomimicry in Education workshop.
