We are excited to be working with partners in Uganda and Nigeria to help to seed formal Biomimicry networks in East and West Africa. This will be initiated through seed events, including a training webinar workshop as a collaboration initiation event. Since this event is online we are opening it up to any countries in Africa to identify where there is further interest to seed formal biomimicry networks in Africa.
