Welcome to the germination site for Biomimicry for Social Innovation. While the full website is under cultivation, this interim site is soil in which seeds can gather and sprout. Come back here to learn, find resources, connect with people and best practices, and engage in dialogue on the community blog. We will be offering Living Systems Leadership workshops and consulting toward Bio-Inspired Organizational Strategies. Click HERE to receive more information soon.
Turning to nature. Listening. Watching. Recognizing patterns. Learning Life’s lessons, and applying them to human systems and strategies. We are learning to live sustainably on planet earth – why not turn to the Earth, itself, and gather insight from the 3.8 billion years of evolutionary success? Learn more about Biomimicry HERE
We are all in this together, more connected than ever, and sharing a common destiny when it comes to life on Earth. NGOs, business, government, communities – people working together with shared interests and dreams, building the world that we know is possible. How can we lead our organizations and social movements to live and work together in a regenerative way, one that both learns from and contributes to the health of the natural world? How can our sense of “we” include all organisms with whom we share the planet?
Creativity. Change. Transforming the way we approach problems. Looking through an ecological lens at a systems view. Applying the adaptive capacity of human beings to the evolutionary work at hand. The field of Biomimicry is spreading like wildfire in sustainable product design and green architecture. We can also apply Life’s lessons to our social systems and culture change. We can learn to think differently, inspired by natural mentors and supported by their intriguing solutions. How can we lead our organizations and social movements to operate more like ecosystems?
The more our world functions like the natural world, the more likely we are to endure on this home, which is ours, but not ours alone.Janine Benyus, Founder, Biomimicry 3.8
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.Albert Einstein
