Making the leap to a sustainable future
Introduction to Biomimicry, Interactive Workshop: Sunday, Nov 9, 2014, 2:00-4:00pm, Oak Park Conservatory, 615 Garfield St.
Have you ever wondered how we will make the leap from today to our sustainable future? Biomimicry, the practice of learning from nature to solve human problems, is emerging as a powerful and disruptive tool for creating sustainable design and systemic transformation. Applied at a variety of scales, from individual products to buildings, communities and organizations, biomimicry brings nature’s 3.8 billion years of R&D experience to the design table to redefine sustainable innovation. The results speak for themselves – incredible efficiency gains, effective life-friendly chemistry, and systems that begin with the notion that there is no such thing as waste.
Workshop is a cooperative offering from the Oak Park Conservatory, Green Community Connections and Biomimicry Chicago. See flyer for details and register at EventBrite online or in person at the Oak Park Conservatory.
