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.
Planting more forest in less time: Nature-inspired reforestation solution captures the 2018 Ray of Hope Prize
Nucleário, an all-in-one reforestation solution, designed to be used in remote areas of the Atlantic rainforest, has won the 2018 Ray of Hope Prize®.
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.
Can human designs give more to the planet than they take? We need a new generation of innovators, who know how to create man-made materials, products, and systems that are regenerative, circular, and generous to all species.
Meet two Launchpad alumni teams who are part of a European Union-funded project that is using nature-based systems to close water loops, feed the soil, and promote local economies.
Game-changing ideas begin by seeing the possibilities for a sustainable world reflected in the living systems that surround us. That’s what we celebrate each year in the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge.
