Heard about biomimicy? EarthSky and FastCompany present new series

In September 2011, EarthSky and Fast Company launched a new series of audio and digital content about biomimicry, which is the process of using nature as inspiration to find innovative solutions to human challenges. The series – called Biomimicry: Nature of Innovation – is made possible by a generous sponsorship by Dow. It will feature interviews and videos with scientists leading the charge in finding solutions to human challenges, in nature. The interviews will be featured on EarthSky’s broadcast network of 1,200+ outlets in the U.S. and abroad, as well as at special sections at earthsky.org and fastcompany.com.

EarthSky Managing Partner Ryan Britton said:

We’re excited to have the opportunity to be able to focus on this emerging scientific field, and to have cutting edge partners like FastCompany and Dow. What I’m enjoying most is what the scientists have to say about biomimicry, this exciting new field of scientific endeavor. These scientists are inspiring. They’re ushering the world into tomorrow, tackling human challenges that range from defense to human health, and everything in between.

The EarthSky promise: β€œTo bring the ideas, strategies, and research results of scientists to people around the world, with the goal of illuminating pathways to a sustainable future.”
