Project Description

Janine Benyus, co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8, presented, “Biomimicry in the Great Lakes and Beyond” on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m. Biomimicry, the practice of learning from and then emulating nature’s best ideas, has the potential to create a more sustainable world. Benyus’ talk is sponsored by Synapse, Culture Quest, Jean Thomas Lambert Foundation, Great Lakes Biomimicry and E.J. Thomas Hall.

Biomimicry is the practice of learning from and then emulating life’s best ideas to create a more sustainable world. By mimicking nature’s time-tested strategies, biomimics are learning to create concrete like a coral, resist bacteria like a shark, produce colors like a peacock, purify water like a marsh and gather energy like a leaf.
