Biomimicry is an innovative method to achieve sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature's patterns and principles. Biomimicry complements practices in Native Hawaiian culture and practice because it seeks harmony with nature and it emphasizes care of the land (malama aina). These values existed in traditional times and remain highly relevant today. This session includes a presentation on the Genius of the Biome and applied examples from education and institutional facilities in Hawaii and elsewhere. Attendees will learn how to identify site, building and infrastructure challenges on their own campus and to apply biometic thinking to identify solutions.
