JANINE BENYUS | THE BIOMIMICRY NETWORK EFFECT: WHAT WILL WE SOLVE TOGETHER?

If we collectively consulted nature to solve a few key issues, imagine
what a difference we could make! The acclaimed biomimicry guru,
biologist, innovation consultant, and author Janine Benyus illuminates how
the Biomimicry community might collaborate, with nature’s help, on a short
list of challenges that just can’t wait. She will translate the latest
scientific findings on Biomimicry, heralded by the Harvard Business Review
as “one of the 20 breakthrough ideas in business,” and on biological
networks into an action plan for anyone wanting to spread good ideas
organically. More info >


JAY HARMAN | THE NATURE OF INNOVATION

As a boy in Australia, Jay Harman noticed that nature’s favorite form is
the spiral. From the shape of galaxies and hurricanes to how blood flows
through your veins to how water goes down a drain, this ancient sacred
form – the Golden Mean – has preoccupied a lineage from indigenous peoples
to Plato, Pythagoras, Descartes and Da Vinci. Harman had the genius to
apply nature’s favorite form to industrial design. Through starting
numerous biomimicry firms and research conducted for his acclaimed new
book, The Shark’s Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature Is Inspiring
Innovation, he has illustrated key ways that biomimetic business differs
from business as usual. He’ll share inspiring examples of companies and
governments that are adopting biomimicry, including radical approaches to
mitigating the harms of fracking and climate change. He will illustrate
ways we can all be biomimics in our homes and businesses. Modern
biomimicry does more than gratify human industrial ambition; it teaches us
how to live in harmony with nature and opens breakthrough opportunities
for a new business model of partnership with nature. More info >
