EBDC Process

By looking deeply into nature, we can tap into the accumulated wisdom of 3.8 billion years of evolution. Europe itself is an ancient ecosystem of a myriad of intertwined cultural facets and social formations. We should use its strengths to create a new economy and society based on life itself.

EUROPEAN BIOMIMICRY DESIGN CHALLENGE

2.) The Challenge

We invite regenerative leaders, sustainability innovators and change-makers of all fields to apply their knowledge and skills to the development of life-inspired innovation in resonance with the SDGs. In a setting of cooperative contesting, teams will share their resources in the spirit of radical collaboration, with the support of mentors and coaches, and apply key frameworks of Biomimicry to their area of focus. 

Here is your challenge

“Design a bio-inspired solution – product or service – that creates a positive impact towards one or several of the selected SDGs using European assets for the benefit of the world.”

Focus fields

The first European Biomimicry Design Challenge is driven by desire to develop solutions to the main concerns of recent years. We thus defined four focus fields. They are supposed to give directions, not to be exclusive or exhaustive.

Your contribution to the Decade of Action

The United Nations have declared the Decade of Action to achieve a carbon-neural world until 2050. The initiative is the latest endeavour to promote and foster the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We assessed which of the SDG are suitable levers for a European context. For that, we scanned the respective targets and identified a diverse group of goals. They shall serve as the North Star for the European Biomimicry Design Challenge without being restrictive.

EBDC Process

For the European Biomimicry Design Challenge, we employ a new kind of platform and a new kind of approach. We believe that we can achieve more and better results if we collaborate and do not compete to outrival other teams. On the platform you will be able to share ideas, insights and questions. And the more you share the more rewards you earn for the challenge! Before you begin your work on the challenge, you have the opportunity to form a team of experts and enthusiasts. You can, but do not need to bring your own team into the challenge. And the more expertise you assemble, the more diverse your team is, the better you will perform.
