CAMPAIGN: Biomimicry Global Design Challenge

CONTENT: Press Release

September 30, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Earlier this year, hundreds of people from around the world took on a challenge to fix our global food system by looking to nature for design solutions. Now, eight finalist teams have been invited to prototype their solutions in an accelerator program that will award $100,000 to the top contender in an effort to increase speed to market for biomimetic solutions to global problems.

The Biomimicry Institute’s Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, sponsored by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation , asks participants to tackle any aspect of the food system that could be improved by looking to nature for design guidance. In the first year of this Challenge, the focus is on key food and agriculture issues like waste, packaging, agricultural pest management, food distribution, energy use, and other solutions.
