Come and find out how biomimicry can help you come up with new sustainable solutions to your design challenges. We’ll have a playful hands-on workshop learning about how to get to sustainable innovation by taking inspiration from nature. This is about seeing both nature and your challenges from a different angle.

This is a multidisciplinary workshop. The more diverse the backgrounds we gather the better! We encourage anybody with a sense of curiosity to join us for two hours of fun, alternating theory and hands on exercise.  No booking needed. The workshop is free of charge.
