Biomimicry is about learning from nature. More specifically, it is the conscious emulation of natural forms, process and systems to solve problems. This is not new, the indigenous people of the world have survived by learning from nature for thousands of years, but recently we have forgotten this opportunity. Nature has been sustainably solving problems for 3.8 billion years and there is much to be learned. Peter will discuss nature as a source of sustainable innovation and the new discipline of Biomimicry.
