The Science of Biomimicry
An emerging discipline that studies Nature’s best ideas and imitates these designs and
processes to solve human (and organization) problems. Biomimicry accesses a deep knowledge of biological adaptations to help business leaders, designers, engineers, architects, etc. to solve challenges sustainably. 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 a quality life on earth over time.
