Janine Benyus and Michael Pawlyn discuss how biomimicry is used to emulate biological systems for more sustainable human-made ones. The presentation is followed by Q&A.

Edit Hook

At the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Disruptive Innovation Festival in 2014, biomimicry pioneers Janine Benyus and Michael Pawlyn each presented 15-minute talks. In biomimicry, we talk about emulating nature’s forms, processes, and systems. For those wanting to emulate nature at the system level, these two talks and the stimulating question and answer session afterwards provide ideas and compelling reasons to do so. By using real-life applications, the discussion of emulating systems goes beyond the abstract to showing real and planned applications.

Janine’s talk starts at minute 4:14, Michael’s at minute 22:02, and the Q&A starts at 35:50. Total video length is one hour.
