Biomimicry Seminars

Biomimicry is about applying nature’s design, patterns, and strategies to developing products, policies, and processes. By applying nature’s underlying design principles to innovations, it is possible to solve many problems and design more efficient processes.

Biomimicry San Diego is offering two free educational seminars on biomimicry at the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center on September 8th and September 16th. Both seminars are all-day, offering not only educational background on biomimicry, but hands-on learning activities as well (and, as an added bonus, breakfast and lunch are both provided). Further, both seminars are led by San Diego Regional Clean Cities Coalition board member Jacques Chirazi (jchirazi@gmail.com), Certified Biomimicry Professional and Founder of Biomimicry San Diego.

Details for each event is below. Visit the EIC website to register.
