Event description

Description

“I think the biggest innovations of the 21st century will be at the intersection of biology and technology. A new era is beginning.”

-Steve Jobs

The Biomimicry Institute defines it as an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul.

Come learn from our speakers how we can use Biomomicry to design more sustainable products and environments by learning from Nature.
