Come and Find out about Biomimicry!

The Cape Town Biomimicry Network will be hosting a meet and greet with some of our members as part of Open Design Festival.



Many have touted the 21st Century as the "Ecological Age". And with around 4 billion years of experience, nature has perfected techniques to address everyday problems. Water, Energy, Traffic, Food, Software, Health, Architecture, Industry, Communications; have all seen advances in recent years after learning from nature through Biomimicry.

Biomimicry goes further than sustainability. It shows us that we can achieve more socially/environmentally friendly practices AND more effective systems. Teaching us how to thrive by creating conditions conducive to life - working with natural forces rather than against them.

Biomimicry can benefit people from all professions, and in all of our daily lives.

So meet our members and ask any questions you might have! Drinks and snacks provided!

This event is hosted by the Cape Town Biomimicry Network - a local branch of BiomimicrySA
