It’s pretty common for us to associate innovation and technology with human ingenuity. In school, we learned about the industrial revolution, and how from that point forward… the standard of life began to increase consistently for the first time in history. The development of machines to do the physical work of humans not only sparked efficiency, but sparked the economy.
By the end of today’s show – I hope to convince you that we’ve overlooked the most important innovator around – Nature. And that you can and should leverage the innovations that nature has already created to live a happy, healthy, and vastly more sustainable life here on Earth.
My guest today is out there spreading this message broadly, educating people around the world to literally think outside the box. Dayna Baumeister is the Co-Founder and Keystone of Biomimicry 3.8 – an organization that helps innovators solve human problems with the brilliance of nature’s design.
On this episode, Dayna and I chat about the roots of biomimicry, about the way human beings innovate vs the way nature innovates, about the difference between bio-inspired design and the real biomimicry of systems, some perspective on the amount of time that nature has been innovate on her own – without us – using only her laws, and a few examples of biomimicry in technology today. We discuss from a human health perspective how we might apply the concept of biomimicry to benefit our own lives on a daily basis.
Go ahead, ask nature how she’d do it…
