WHAT IS BIOMIMICRY ONLINE?
Biomimicry Online is a journey of discovery into Nature’s genius and the concept and practice of biomimicry.
Developed by Sue Swain and hosted by The Expedition Project, Biomimicry Online aims to complement existing online biomimicry courses out there by focusing not on biomimicry as an approach to innovation, but instead as a way of being, a way of life. Biomimicry is essentially the practice of Reconnecting with, Learning from and Emulating Nature’s genius and in Biomimicry as a Way of Being, our Reconnect element focuses on three things: i) re-establishing relationship with Life on Earth…learning to live again in relationship with the rest of Nature. ii) reconnecting with our extraordinary planetary home and importantly, iii) reconnecting with ourselves as fellow earth-based beings. Of course, biomimicry isn’t biomimicry without learning from Nature and in this, we focus on discovering lessons for living wisely on earth from our planetary elders – the plants, animals and microbes and the ecosystems/communities in which they live – and we look at how we can start applying those lessons in our daily lives. As such, Biomimicry Online (Biomimicry as a way of Being) , is not just for designers, architects and engineers – it is for each and every one of us.
