Sponsored by Synapse, Culture Quest, Jean Thomas Lambert Foundation, Great Lakes Biomimicry (GLBio) and E. J. Thomas Hall
Biomimicry is the practice of learning from and then emulating life's best ideas to create a more sustainable world. By mimicking nature's time-tested strategies, biomimics are learning to create concrete like a coral, resist bacteria like a shark, produce colors like a peacock, purify water like a marsh and gather energy like a leaf.
Based on 3.8 billion of years of research and development, these designs sip energy, shave material use, eliminate toxins and turn waste into opportunities. Come learn what all the excitement is about from the founder of this practical radical and powerfully hopeful approach to innovation.
The popular campus-wide speaker series, The University of Akron Forum is in its 18th year. Supported by E. J. Thomas Hall, the Office of the President, and the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, the Forum and the John S. Knight Lecture bring a series of major speakers to campus each season so The University of Akron can better serve its campus community and the people of Northeast Ohio.
Part of The Akron Experience: Global and Cultural Awareness.
