Description

Thirsty for biomimicry knowledge?

This month's topic: Ecosystem Functions - How do we measure up? We are excited to have Conservation Design Forum's (CDF) Jim Patchett join us to share his deep exterptise in this area! Join us @ CDF in Lonbard (403 West Saint Charles Road).

Join us for our biomimicry happy hour discussions where you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about, explore and discuss biomimicry, challenges facing our built environment, and opportunities for rethinking our approach to these challenges through a biomimicry lens
  • Contribute your expertise to strengthen the group’s understanding of both the challenges and opportunities for using biomimicry in the built environment
  • Connect with like-minded colleagues interested in driving true sustainability and resiliency in our cities

We will also bring some drinks to satify your other thirst - please bring a little cash to help cover costs!

***Please register individually due to building security. Guests will check in with security, who will direct them up to the 34th floor. Concierge on the 34th will point the way to the 35th floor “Boardroom”.***

Mark your calendars for our event series!
