until I discovered biomimicry that I was truly awakened to Nature’s boundless genius, humbling wisdom
and gracious generosity
.

I am excited to share my passion and trust the course will ignite a similar passion and excitement for

When to take the course

This online course can be taken at your own pace and in your own environment.

How it works

Each module in this series consists of lessons each with summary quizzes to assess your understanding of the subject.

In order to progress through the course you will need to click on COMPLETE LESSON at the end of each page.

Some lessons will contain quizzes which will need to be taken to get an assessment of your results at the end and progress to future modules.

In addition to the summary quizzes, there are also more detailed questions after most lessons designed to deepen one’s understanding and engaging with the topic in order to develop the skills to apply biomimicry thinking and principles in everyday life. While these questions do not have to be completed before you can move on to the next lesson, they are an essential part of your journey of discovery that will greatly enrich what you get out of the course.

Some lessons will contain exercises which are also an essential part of developing the skills to become an effective biomimic.
You will be asked to write an essay at the end of the course describing your personal journey of discovery and awakening and keeping a journal is highly recommended for you to keep track of your personal experiences. The same journal should be used for the Exercises.

What you need

Laptop or PC preferable, rather than mobile phone.

You may encounter issues on Mac Safari browsers. Other browsers are preferred.

Making the most of it
