Emulating Life’s Genius and Grace

Then be sure to watch this short, excellent by Janine Benyus, Biomimicry 3.8 given in 2003 at National Bioneers‘ annual conference. Janine is a biologist, innovation consultant, and author of six books, including Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature.

Biomimicry is an innovation method that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies, e.g., a solar cell inspired by a leaf. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul.

In this presentation, Janine asks “How would nature deal with climate change? Drought? Rising CO2? Pollution?”. The better we understand the genius of nature, the more we will be moved to protect it and the more we will be able to take nature’s principles and apply them to today’s challenges.

Eco-Justice Collaborative is planning the third Bioneers Network Event in Chicago this coming November. If you are interested in joining Chicago’s Bioneers movement for change, contact Pam.
