Biomimicry Toolbox: Your guide to applying nature’s lessons to design challenges #Biomimicry #Biohacking

Janine plant3 e1420037569299

What is Biomimicry and why do we need it? Find answers to these questions as well as inspiration and resources at Biomimicry.org

Design for life.

By applying nature’s design principles, we can create solutions that help support a healthy planet.

This digital resource site provides a quick-start guide to biomimicry, introducing the core concepts and methods that are essential to successfully incorporate insights from nature into design.

This toolbox provides an orientation to biomimicry and introduces a set of tools and core concepts that can help problem-solvers from any discipline begin to incorporate insights from nature into their solutions.

We have assembled the toolkit to support individuals and teams participating in design challenges organized by the Biomimicry Institute and/or our affiliates, but feel free to use it in your own work or to support courses you teach. We’ve found that design challenges offer an excellent way to teach and learn biomimicry. We encourage you to put these concepts into practice by applying them to a design problem that interests you, even if you don’t enter one of our design competitions.
