BNYC is a regional network of professionals from all industries, sectors and backgrounds, dedicated to cultivating a community of biomimicry practice in the NY Metro region.
Biomimicry is a science that studies nature's best practices, engineering strategies and design techniques, and applies them to solve man-made challenges. We see nature as our mentor, model and measure, rather than a "wharehous of goods" (Janine Benyus).
Nature's 3.8 billion years of wisdom is the greatest "natural resource" we have yet to tap into. This practice has galvanized scientists, architects, designers and engineers into exploring new ways in which nature's successes can inspire new innovations and transform man-made systems, products, cities and services.
As a founding member of the Global Biomimicry Network, we work to connect practitioners, help people learn more and catalyze new projects.
The next frontier of sustainability goes beyond doing "less bad", and rather "more good". All are welcome to join us in working with nature and in pursuit of a regenerative economy.
