Building Community: An Interactive Biomimicry Workshop
Biomimicry is a design science and philosophy that draws inspiration from nature.  In this session with leading Certified Biomimicry Professionals, we’ll discover nature’s strategies through interactive, hands-on exercises; approaches that can inspire us to collaborate, learn, share, influence, and self-organize in new ways.  Working in teams, we will explore how those strategies and lessons can be applied to help us generate naturally sustainable communities.  With: Peggy H. Chu, MS, AIA, LEED AP, Architect; Rachel MW Hahs, MS ENV SP, Sustainability Professional; Diana Hammer, MPH, MS, Life Scientist, Biomimicry Collaborative.
