The Biomimicry Global Design Challenge (BGDC) Taiwan Competition is a stage for young people to showcase their sustainable ideas inspired by nature and a potential way to start their future career or to solve real-world problems… but this is only one side of the story. The BGDC Taiwan Competition is a battle ring for the young people (and even the organizer) to challenge harmful patterns of the existing industrial society.
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.
