« Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. » Albert Einstein.

More than ever, we need the best tools to innovate and face our challenges in a sustainable way. Nature and its living systems create the conditions that lead to regeneration, this is such a beautiful definition for sustainable development.

To do this, living creatures use a certain number of principles that we can also use in our design processes and our organizations in order to make them more sustainable.

  1. Meet the challenges of today and of tomorrow
  2. Create sustainable solutions
  3. Facilitate decision-making

The training program

Biomimicry: principles into practice


Seek inspiration in nature for sustainable innovation

In nature, mature ecosystems are resilient, they are efficient with their resources and show great adaptability.

With this first module, learn about the foundations of biomimicry as well as the basic methods that will allow you to apply it for your business, your products or services.

  • Define your challenges while inspired by the principles of nature

  • Be inspired by nature and put it into practice

  • Use the two major principles: efficiency and adaptability

Build more resilience in your business and designs

Knowing how to adapt to change, observe and seize opportunities are essential qualities for the competitiveness of your company and your products. Nature can offer plenty of inspiring examples.

In this second module, you will learn to assess and improve the resilience of your organization by taking advantage of your environment, your local resources and by including diversity and decentralization.

  • Adapt your organization and your products to local resources and flows

  • Anticipate change by creating easily adaptable structures

  • Create an evolution strategy


Contribute and strengthen your ecosystem

Your business and your products are not isolated, they are part of an ecosystem. It is in everyone's best interests that this ecosystem prospers.

In this module you will learn to handle the complexity of your ecosystem and use tools that will allow you to better organize yourself to better support the ecosystem, but also how to take advantage of hidden opportunities.

  • Design feedback loops to improve your product or service

  • Find new opportunities by strengthening your collaborations

  • Improve the experience of your users or customers

Creating a more human organization

Taking culture and people into account is essential in leading change. Your teams, your superiors, your customers need to feel considered and to create a change, you have to convince them, encourage them.

In this module you will learn how nature uses leadership and decentralization to organize thousands of people in an incredible efficient way.

  • Structure your team and your business to improve efficiency

  • Redefine your leadership for the development of your teams

  • Create a strong culture to multiply your organization's capabilities
