Dear Friends,

Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature's time tested patterns and strategies.

Ecovillages all around the world have been implementing biomimetic solutions to mitigate against climate change. This is the opportunity to share these innovations and join the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge.

As we reflect on the current ecological, societal, political, economic and spiritual circumstances in the present day, it is clear that the need for reorganization is upon us.  A time of creation, of course, is equally a time of destruction.  We breathe life into new models by stepping into them, and old model dissolve as we step out of them, though for a time we may have a foot in each as we shift our weight from one to the other.  Either that, or the old model dissolves before we’ve found a new one to step into, which is the scarier projection, but we step forward anyway once we find we’re still here even after everything we knew before is not.

The Biomimicry Institute, in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, holds a design challenge every year inviting participants to address critical global issues with nature-inspired solutions. This year the challenge is to create a product, service or system that combats climate change.
