Would you let a hump-back whale design your wind turbines?
How would we design our buildings, make & transport goods, harvest water & energy, and produce our food if we saw nature’s elaborate solutions as a role model? At Biomimicry Germany e.V. our vision is to create a resilient, adaptive, and thriving economy inspired by nature’s best strategies and based on nature's best practices. Biomimicry means applying nature's wisdom as a guiding framework for a cultural shift towards sustainable living.
The pinnacle of this workshop will be the inspiration we give you to go out, explore nature, and learn from it … to see the same things as before but with a completely new PERSPECTIVE. Discover the designer and creator in you!
You will learn how to explore nature in a completely different way. You will be surprised to see the ways nature builds colors, textures, forms, smells as well as intricate and efficient designs. We will explore the context of such natural designs. Based on this and on your enthusiasm we might take a step further to actual prototyping. If you have been thinking of a better design solution for a product or a process then bring your wishes with you.
ABOUT THE HOST:
Instead of drawing on quick and easy solutions rooted in the tradition of the industrial revolution, they seek their answers in natural systems - strategies that have been optimized over 3.8 billion years of evolution. Given their interdisciplinary academic backgrounds, both Prateep and Arndt started seeing the strengths in combining those, thereby shaping a new kind of thought process – biomimicry design thinking. In 2012 this gave way to the co-founding of Biomimicry Germany, a think-and-do-tank to foster sustainable innovation inspired by nature. By attending this workshop you will get a one-year membership in their organization biomimicry germany.
