Review for The Biomimicry Institute, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first heard about Biomimicry at the annual Bioneers Conference in 2002 and was immediately drawn to the notion of innovation inspired by nature. Since its founding in 2004, the Biomimicry Institute has actively promoted the concept of learning from and then emulating natural forms, processes, and ecosystems to create more sustainable and healthier human technologies and designs. The organization has grown to a team of eleven full time staff with programs spanning K-12 to professional education. Our "Ask Nature" database is a first of its kind resource that organizes biological knowledge by function.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the term "biomimicry" show up in mainstream media and conferences, moving from "an interesting idea" to a core technique in support of the next industrial revolution.
