About the event:


And if you know little about Biomimicry then that is an even greater reason to join us for a fascinating morning.

The Cape Town Biomimicry Network will be hosting a meet and greet with some of our members as part of Open Design Festival.



“bios” – life, “mimesis” – imitate/copy

the process of:

– looking at how different forms of nature overcome daily challenges,
– studying the genius natural design of the form/process/systems in place,
– and then translating it into innovative ways to improve society, business or the environment!

Many have touted the 21st Century as the “Ecological Age”. And with around 4 billion years of experience, nature has perfected techniques to address everyday problems. Water, Energy, Traffic, Food, Software, Health, Architecture, Industry, Communications; have all seen advances in recent years after learning from nature through Biomimicry.

Biomimicry goes further than sustainability. It shows us that we can achieve more socially/environmentally friendly practices AND more effective systems. Teaching us how to thrive by creating conditions conducive to life – working with natural forces rather than against them.
