As a science educator, I feel we can and should do a far better job of helping people see and understand the systems that govern our world, and internalize the lessons they can teach us.
At its heart, Bioneers is a nexus to explore nature-inspired solutions to social and environmental challenges. This year’s summit also served as the culmination of the third-annual Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, sponsored by the Biomimicry Institute in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Sierra Magazine profiled each of the teams who took the stage at Bioneers this year, sharing details about their planet-saving innovations.
This year at Bioneers, six international teams from the Biomimicry Launchpad will showcase their climate change solutions, all based on lessons learned from living systems.
We sat down with our co-founder, Janine Benyus to talk about the most exciting things happening in the growing field of biomimicry.
