Sustainability Design Deep Dive 2020 Session Description

Presentation: Biomimicry, Product Design, and the Circular Economy

Biomimicry is design innovation inspired by the way that nature works. The concept of a circular economy is a great example of biomimicry since there is no such thing as waste in nature. In ecosystems, resources flow through endless closed loops. But how do we design products to flow through a circular economy? What can nature teach us about how to create the most sustainable designs possible? This session is all about learning to ask these questions and how to look for the answers.
