This Week's News

Beginning April 4th, 2017
Self-cleaning paint inspired by lotus leaves, networks that emulate slime mold, and management principles inspired by honeybees are a few examples. A growing number of people are applying lessons from nature’s treasure trove of tried-and-true solutions to spur innovation toward creating healthier, more resilient societies.  

Join us for ISSP's April 2017 course, taught by biomimicry pioneer Mary Hansel. Through a series of interactive, online presentations, exercises, and a final deliverable, this course is designed to give you the opportunity to:

  • Develop the ability to describe the concept of biomimicry and how it can be used to inspire innovation and advance sustainability.
  • Explore deep patterns of biological design (Life’s Principles) that all organisms use to survive and thrive.
  • Apply biomimicry thinking and Life’s Principles to real challenges.
  • Identify biomimicry tools and resources.
  • Interact with biomimicry professionals from different disciplines.   

ISSP members can audit the course for only $30. Partner discounts are also available for members of AASHE, ACCO, USDN, STAR Communities, and - of course - Biomimicry Institute Network Affiliates. Sign up today!
