We’ve had quite a year so far at Biomimicry 3.8, trekking around the globe and back again as our team shared biomimicry’s story and the latest on innovations inspired by nature. Finishing out 2016 will be no exception.

We’re headed out on the road again, this time to take part in Converge 2016 in L.A, the Living Product Expo in Pittsburgh, before heading back to L.A. to join the fun at Greenbuild. Next comes SXSW Eco, Bioneers, and the debut of our new Inspired by Nature: Biomimicry for the Built Environment training. We’ll finish up (for now!) in the Netherlands.

Here’s a closer look where we’ll be in the coming months. Take a look, and if you can join us at one of the events, come say hi and share what’s new with you–and we’ll share our wonderful Find Your Mentor business cards.
