Biomimicry Workshop – Innovation Inspired by Nature
August 24 @ 2:00 pm - August 27 @ 1:00 pm
This workshop is for anyone who wishes to incorporate Biomimicry Thinking into their work
Bioversum, in cooperation with European Biomimicry Alliance (EBA) and designforum Vorarlberg presents Biomimicry, Innovation Inspired by Nature
Participants will become familiar with the Biomimicry Framework and the Biomimicry Practice. A defined design challenge will be the vehicle for practicing the Biomimicry Thinking Innovation Process and moving through the four phases of scoping, discovering, creating, and evaluating against the Biomimicry Sustainability Mandate of 26 Life Principles. Woven into this process will be information around the EU circular economy package and its steps towards a regenerative circular economy, where ecological design will play an important part in the future. The process is highly collaborative, transdisciplinary, and creative, Design Thinking methods are also part of the methodology. Participants walk away with a thorough understanding of the living systems inspired innovation process and resources in their hands to replicate this process in their own worlds.
