Biomimicry Australia (BiomimicrySwarm Australia) is co-sponsoring and organising a Biomimicry Immersion workshop with Biomimicry 3.8 to be held September 5 – 10th, 2016 at Cape Tribulation in Queensland.
This will be the first event of this kind in Australia and we’re looking forward to learning from the unique organisms that call the Daintree and Great Barrier Reef home about how to translate tried and tested strategies for successfully living in this part of the world to innovatively solve human design challenges.
We’ll be staying at the Cape Tribulation Beach House, nestled between the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. Both of these ecosystems are home to 1000’s of species that have much to teach us.
“This workshop is open to professional- and university-level participants from all backgrounds and levels of experience with biomimicry. The agenda is designed to give non-biologists a front door into the world of biology and how to apply its lessons. Biologists will also find value in the workshop in learning how to make biological information accessible, relevant, and valuable to a wide range of audiences.”
The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Dayna Baumeister, a world-renowned biomimicry lecturer, co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8 , the Director of the Biomimicry Professional Certificate Program and co-director of The Biomimicry Center at Arizona State University. She will be assisted by Certified Biomimicry Professional, Restoration Ecologist and Biologist, Karen Allen, who is also a Biomimicry Consultant and Biologist-at-the-Design-Table. Jane Toner, Australia’s certified Biomimicry Specialist and Biomimicry Professional, will be a special guest and host.
