Jane Stetson Memorial Lecture

May 21, 2022
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Cheatam Hall,World Forestry Center
Free Admission

Join us for an inspirational program to learn about biomimicry. Beth Rattner, Executive Director, The Biomimicry Institute, will present on May 21, 2022 at 2:00pm in Cheatam Hall. This is open to all with no admission charge.

Biomimicry offers an empathetic, interconnected understanding of how life works and ultimately where we fit in. It is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies used by species alive today. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies — new ways of living — that solve our greatest design challenges sustainably and in solidarity with all life on earth. We can use biomimicry to not only learn from nature’s wisdom, but also heal ourselves — and this planet — in the process.
