#7-Innovation inspired by nature -A conversation with Janine Benyus

In this episode we explore biomimicry, the bridge between biology and design.  We talk with Janine about how using nature-inspired strategies can help mankind solve many of the most pressing problems of our time.  Through her consultancy Biomimicry 3.8,  Janine works with large corporations and organizations to change their relationships with the built environment.  By looking attentively at nature, she helps them design ecological performance standards for their infrastructure which allow them to produce ecosystem services. These ecological gifts and flows are what you discover when studying healthy regenerative ecosystems.

Our guest Janine Benyus is an American biologist, innovation consultant and author of the groundbreaking book Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature.  She is co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8 a world leading bio-inspired consultancy B Corporation. She is also co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute, a bridge between biology and design, advancing the adoption of nature-inspired strategies to create more sustainable, efficient resilient and regenerative products and systems.  Janine has introduced millions to Biomimicry through her inspiring Ted Talks, keynote speeches and documentaries. 

We would like to thank our sponsors Elders Action Network “Building a movement of elders to address the environmental, governance and social issues of our time“ and Blueprint “Enhancing the well-being of men and communities.”
