What is biomimicry?

Learn Biomimicry is partnering with EcoTraining to offer world-class biomimicry training. Biomimicry is a new lens with which to view and understand nature - as a source of inspiration for solving challenges and innovation towards sustainable products, processes and systems. Biomimicry is the practice of learning FROM (rather than ABOUT) nature. The innovations that have emerged from the field of biomimicry are inspiring and offer a glimpse of a hopeful future for humanity - one where our designs are truly sustainable.

Who should take this course?

This online biomimicry course is applicable to anyone who’d love to expand their knowledge, insight and wisdom in learning from nature. It’s a great opportunity for field guides to add a fascinating edge to their guiding. Each person you guide lives and works in a world beyond nature, biomimicry offers a bridge between the natural world and the human/designed world. Your guests will leave with meaningful value added to their nature experience and understanding of how to bring the genius and wisdom of nature into their work and their world.
