JAY HARMAN | THE NATURE OF INNOVATION

Through starting numerous biomimicry firms and research conducted for his acclaimed new book, The Shark’s Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature Is Inspiring Innovation, Harman has illustrated key ways that biomimetic business differs from business as usual. He’ll share inspiring examples of companies and governments that are adopting biomimicry, including radical approaches to mitigating the harms of fracking and climate change. He will illustrate ways we can all be biomimics in our homes and businesses. Modern biomimicry does more than gratify human industrial ambition; it teaches us how to live in harmony with nature and opens breakthrough opportunities for a new business model of partnership with nature.

    We'll also be showing Janine Benyus's "The Biomimicry Network Effect: What Will We Solve Together?" - very exciting stuff! Janine coined the term biomimicry and has great insight into its applications and how we can all plug into the idea.
