I’m looking forward to joining the panel at this event.

The biomimetic city – a city modelled on nature – offers a sustainable future. To what extent can we use biomimicry to help shape our cities’ infrastructure? What are the trade-offs and leverage points that can allow us to develop systems – ecological, structural, technological, circulatory and chemical – that are more productive and effective than those already in place? Can we go beyond looking at organisms and start by valuing the interconnectedness? Peter Head (Founder and Chief Executive Officer, The Ecological Sequestration Trust) joins Julian Vincent (Honorary Professor of Biomimetics at University of Rhein-Waal/ University of Oxford) and Sue Thomas (Technobiophilia: Nature and Cyberspace). Chaired by Richard James MacCowan (Founder Director – Biomimicry UK). More info here.
