Mimicking nature might be the plan for your Halloween costume (trick or treating is so close!), but looking to nature is also increasingly seen as a way to solve problems and innovate both in life and business. Biomimicry is a burgeoning field that involves finding sustainable solutions to certain challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Innovators have found solutions to real-world problems through the study of the shape of a bird's beak, the hide of an armadillo, and the fins of a humpback whale. We'll dive into cool examples and how you can learn to apply the principles of biomimicry both in your own life with the help of our expert guest, Nicole Miller, Managing Director at Biomimicry 3.8.
Sustainability Defined is the podcast that defines sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Jay Siegel and Scott Breen. Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward.
We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode.
We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors:
Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree. The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means.
