Mission

The Biomimicry Institute empowers people to create nature-inspired solutions for a healthy planet. Our mission is to create the tools and make the information available to the community of people who design and make our 'stuff.' By bringing biologists and designers together in collaboration, we work to promote the transfer of ideas, designs and strategies from biology to sustainable human design. Life has been on earth for 3.8 billion years, and in that time, organisms have learned to do everything we humans want to do without polluting the planet. By emulating nature’s time-tested designs and processes—a process called biomimicry--we have the opportunity to restore our soil, forests, and oceans, create healthy products, and reverse the effects of climate change. - Janine Benyus
