Pure Beginnings brings you… Think Outside - Innovation inspired by Nature


ABOUT THIS TALK

An entertaining and yet powerfully meaningful presentation exploring a range of lessons from nature for the future of technology, business and our world. Nature’s forms inspire efficiencies beyond what we thought was possible. Nature’s processes are way ahead of the cutting edge of our technologies. Nature’s systems encompass the wisdom and genius of billions of years of experience. This presentation explores how we are learning from emulating nature’s forms, processes and systems for innovative responses to human challenges. There are literally as many ideas as there are organisms.

Biomimicry – “Bios” means life, “Mimicry” means imitate. Biomimicry is the practice of learning from and then emulating life’s genius. It is a design process, a problem-solving method, a sustainability ethos, a movement, a stance toward nature, and a new way of viewing and valuing biodiversity.
