How can nature inspire us to design a better, healthier food system? The Biomimicry Institute and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation are inviting professionals and students from across the world to participate in a Biomimicry Global Design Challenge. Using biomimicry as a tool, participants are invited to tap into nature-inspired solutions to help solve key food and agriculture issues.
In order to spark truly disruptive food system innovations, the Biomimicry Institute, in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, is launching a worldwide biomimicry design competition in January 2015. The goal of this competition is to engage and mobilize thousands of students and professionals to tackle food system challenges using biomimicry design solutions. Whether addressing waste, growing methods, pest management, packaging, preservation and distribution, soil quality—or the changing climate—nature offers strategies for solving issues around food and agriculture in innovative ways. Designers, scientists, engineers, students, and more are invited to use biomimicry as a tool to develop new approaches to improving our food system.
