How to Apply Biomimicry Locally to Address Global Problems: a hands-on workshop

How do we begin the process of looking to nature to solve big challenges? This hands-on workshop with Gretchen Hooker and Megan Schuknecht of the Biomimicry Institute will introduce us to the fundamentals of biomimicry and encourage us, as well as our peers and/or students, to apply our new skills by participating in the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge. The Challenge works locally to address the major core global problems we face related to energy, water, food and agriculture, and our built environment.
