They come from around the world—Finland, Columbia, Lebanon, Singapore, and Romania to name a few—and are biologists, engineers, social innovators, designers, entrepreneurs, strategists, and educators.
We’re proud to introduce the 2018 Certified Biomimicry Professional Cohort because they are the future leaders of biomimicry, ready to learn how biomimicry can help create a more resilient, sustainable world for all.
