WHAT IS BIOMIMICRY?
Biomimicry is the practice of learning from and then emulating life’s genius to solve design challenges and create more sustainable designs. Biomimicry is a design process, a branch of science, a problem-solving method, a sustainability ethos, a movement, a stance toward nature, and a new way of viewing and valuing biodiversity.

WHO WILL LEAD THE WORKSHOP?
As a Certified Biomimicry Professional, Claire spends her time exploring nature’s genius in diverse ecosystems and shares this new way of viewing and valuing nature through biomimicry expeditions and coaching– teaching & training professionals, students and scholars. She also dives deeper into research for companies and organisations - translating nature’s innovation and sustainability principles for the design of new products, processes & systems.
