What They Do

The Biomimicry Institute empowers people to create nature-inspired solutions for a healthy planet. The Institute’s goal is to make biomimicry a natural part of the design process. The organization accomplishes this by tackling one massive sustainability problem at a time. Its Design Challenges platform mobilizes tens of thousands of networked practitioners to solve the challenge, and provides those practitioners with the tools to begin. The Institute anticipates dozens of new biomimetic innovations will result, creating a healthier world for all.

What We Love

The Biomimicry Institute combines the wisdom of nature with the enthusiasm of designers to create new ways of solving design challenges. The Institute’s programs harness the passion for and interest in biomimicry to gather knowledge, connect designers with big challenges, and build communities of practitioners.
