Evolutionary Design through the Lens of Biomimicry

Evolutionary Design through the Lens of Biomimicry

Spiral From Knowledgenet Small

With Janine Benyus, Author of Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, founder of AskNature.org

 

headshotFor us to really get with the evolutionary program we need not control and patent natural systems, processes and life forms, but rather learn advanced design from them. Janine Benyus is the catalyst of and guide for a cross-disciplinary movement following her basic thesis that human beings should consciously emulate nature’s genius in their designs. This 50 minute extended program not only conveys much about the concept and applications of biomimicry, but also sheds light on Janine’s history and current work and awards, her concerns about the patenting of natural forms and GMOs, and ways to get involved with and support biomimicry. Benyus founded Biomimicry 3.8, a B Corporation offering educational and youth programs, consulting and training, and a public Biomimicry Design Portal used by students and researchers, AskNature.org
