Biomimicry: A Framework for Sustainable Design

Disrupt your thinking.
Flex your creativity.
Get a jolt of inspiration.

Envision your role
in creating a sustainable world.


We are all feeling an urgency to take action on climate change and sustainability. Designers have a unique ability to make change, but they need new sources of inspiration as well as a new problem-solving tool.

During this hands-on experience, we’ll cover basics of Sustainable Design and Biomimicry and share tools of Bio-Inspired Design. While playing with nature, you’ll sharpen your skills of observation and learn new tools for ideation.

You’ll leave with a worksheet you can use to practice bringing nature to your design table to create more innovative and sustainable solutions. Brought to you by experts in the emerging field of Sustainable Design, we take you beyond recycling and composting and dig into design’s role in crafting a sustainable future.


This workshop is offered twice:
SUNDAY APRIL 19 from 1:00 to 3:30pm and TUESDAY April 21 from 3:30-6:00pm

Looking forward to meeting you there!
