Global Design Wettbewerb
Lerne Biomimicry und nehme gleichzeitig Teil am Global Biomimicry Design Wettbewerb
Das Biomimicry Institute und die Ray C. Andersen Stiftung stellen die Aufgabe, unseren Lebensraum mit seinen natürlichen Systemen zu beobachten und mit deren Hilfe die grösste Herausforderung unserer Zeit zu lösen - Der Klimawandel.
Das Team von Biomimicry Switzerland unterstützt diesen Wettbewerb als Mentoren und Schiedsrichter. Da es sich um einen internationalen Wettbewerb handelt ist die weitere Beschreibung in englisch.
The 2016-17 Biomimicry Global Design Challenge is mobilizing thousands of students and professionals worldwide to tackle climate-related challenges using biomimicry. The goal: to show how nature-inspired design can provide viable solutions to the current climate crisis.
Over billions of years, living organisms on our planet have learned to adapt, survive, and thrive. We need to do the same. The impacts of our rapidly-changing climate are becoming more evident every day, with rising sea levels, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, and extreme weather events happening with increasing frequency. Inventors worldwide are using nature-inspired design to create solutions to address energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, food systems, transportation, water management, coastal communities, and fossil fuel usage. Applying nature’s design blueprints to our climate crisis can turn the tide.
Participants get access to our collection of biomimicry resources, the chance to be featured in high profile media, advice from experts and mentors, and the opportunity to win cash prizes. Up to ten teams will be invited to take part in the Biomimicry Accelerator, where they will compete for the Ray C. Anderson Foundation $100,000 “Ray of Hope” Prize, which will be awarded each year.
Submission are due April 30, 2017
