Our natural world is not only the guru of green design, but a startup whiz kid who’s had billions of years to perfect her craft. And not only does she make cool “apps” like spring and summer, but she does so in tandem with all other species so that her “valuation” is priceless and shareholder return, infinite ...

"What might we learn about cooperation from a forest ecosystem? How can nature’s feedback loops inspire us in cultivating our networks? How can bee colonies mentor us for self-organizing within a community?" 

A rare opportunity to learn from +Dayna Baumeister and +Toby Herzlich and practice #LifesPrinciples  at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. October 10 - 12th. 
Women leading change in these dynamic times are tuning into new sources of inspiration—personally, socially, and globally. They are seeking guidance in how to be more adaptive, resilient, networked, and systemic—all things we can learn from the natural world around us. During the weekend, participants will learn to integrate biomimicry methods with leadership practices. What might…

“What the industrial age has done is take life away from the planet and turn it into goods and services." Paul Hawken and Janine Benyus discuss running the Industrial Age backwards and creating products from abundant resources of waste, the way nature would.
By Adiel Gavish "What the industrial age has done is take life away from the planet and turn it into goods and services," Paul Hawken stated at the 2014 VERGE Conference in San Francisco this past December. The annual event put on by Joel Makower, a former Biomimicry 3.8 Board Member and GreenBiz.com brings corporations…

Join the BiomimicryNYC network and Green Harbors Project for a Design Charette on resilience inspired by nature.

November 17th from 10am to 5 pm on Governor's Island. See NYC from a completely different perspective - as an oyster, as the salt marsh and eelgrass.
RSVP How can urban harbors accrete sediment and stop erosion like the salt marsh; while improving water quality like the oyster reef and creating a habitat for other species like eel grass beds? Two years since Superstorm Sandy, the world is a different place. Everyone is talking about "resilient coastal cities", but what does that really mean?…

Amory Lovins on Janine Benyus and #biomimicry:

"Biomimicry isn't biotechnology. Biomimicry learns and emulates how spiders make silk; biotechnology transplants spiders' silk-making genes into goats, then sorts silk from milk and hopes the genes don't get loose. Biotechnology is smart kids in an oil depot with matches; biomimicry is wise adults in a rain forest with flashlights. Biotechnology is pure hubris; biomimicry is luminous humility — treating nature as model and mentor, cherished not as a mine to be stripped of its resources but as a teacher."

"Life's Principles" of regenerative design seem to be emerging in many forms through the "Collaborative Economy".

Nature has built a vibrant #SharingEconomy over 3.8 billion years, and now it's our turn to share, upcycle, borrow and lend:

Story
Tagline
Biomimicry Practitioner, Student, Sustainability Strategist
Introduction
I am the founder of BiomimicryNYC, a sustainability strategist and former grassroots environmental advocate. BiomimicryNYC is a diverse network of professionals committed to creating and fostering a community of nature-inspired practice in the NYC metro region. We invite you to help us imagine and create a city inspired by nature.
 
This science and art of design provides a compelling and positive message for sustainable ingenuity. The next frontier of innovation focuses on added value, not just reduced impact.

Man-made systems, products and services can "create conditions conducive to life" (Janine Benyus, co-founder Biomimicry 3.8) by learning from nature's 3.8 billion year investment in R&D. 
 
The answers to your most pressing questions and business challenges are just outside your door...
 
We invite everyone to join us in cultivating a community of nature-inspired practice- from those who are simply curious to seasoned practitioners seeking to sharpen your skills.
