Sharkskin, Hippo Sweat and the Wood-Wide Web: From Flat Earth to Whole Earth Thinking - Janine Benyus and Jay Harman | Bioneers Radio Series 14
Bioneers: Revolution From the Heart of Nature | Bioneers Radio Series
The genius of nature’s design, recipes and principles is serving as the inspiration for redesigning human civilization. This Biomimicry revolution is spawning a next industrial revolution. Biomimicry masters Janine Benyus and Jay Harman illuminate the forefront of nature-inspired design, including human organization and the power of networks.

Janine Benyus Pioneer of Biomimicry and Global Leader in Sustainable Design
Go Green Radio
Tune in as we talk with Janine Benyus about how she has helped some of the world’s top companies design for the future by drawing inspiration from 3.8 billion years of nature’s blueprint. Benyus has worked with companies like Boeing, Colgate-Palmolive, Nike, General Electric, Herman Miller, HOK architects, IDEO, Interface, Natura, Procter and Gamble, Levi’s, Kohler, and General Mills to create sustainable product designs. In 2010, BusinessWeek named Janine one of the World’s Most Influential Designers, and her work in biomimicry has been featured in Fortune, Forbes, Newsweek, Esquire, The Economist, Time, Wired, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Nature, and more.

Author and Co-Founder of Biomimicry 3.8 Janine Benyus sits down with host Megan Hayes to explain the art and science of biomimicry and how nature may hold the key to the biggest scientific and social challenges of our time.
JANINE BENYUS on Redesigning Society Based on Nature ⌠ENCORE⌡ /71
For The Wild
This week we are excited to feature an encore episode chosen by our dear Podcast Editor and Producer Andrew Storrs. Biomimicry asks us to look at nature’s blueprint for a game plan. High speed trains from technology of the kingfisher birds, wind turbines from the humpback whale, harvesting fog air as inspired by the stenocara beetle, shock absorption from the woodpecker, planet cooling ventilation from termites-- these are fully functioning technologies that have existed in the vision of nature’s sheer brilliance.. Rather than drilling, pummelling, mining, exploding, taking, we could simply just look and see how it has been done since the very beginning. Sustainability should be the bare minimum when we have all the necessary technology to be thriving.Listen again this Thursday to this episode full of inspiration!
Episode 5 - Janine Benyus: Innovation Inspired by Nature
The Next Voice You Hear
Janine is what she likes to call a "biologist at the design table". who in 1997 authored, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, a book that remains extraordinarily relevant to this day. In short, Janine and the Biomimicry Institute solve some of the worlds most complex design problems by looking to the natural world and its endless database of evolutionary solutions. Since 2003, they have been bringing nature’s sustainable designs to 250+ clients including Boeing, Colgate-Palmolive, Nike, General Electric, Herman Miller, HOK architects, IDEO, Interface, Natura, Procter and Gamble, Levi’s, Kohler, and General Mills.In this episode, you will learn how a Galapagos shark, a peacock, and even your everyday forest hold the answers to incredible innovations in design and communications.SHOW NOTES:Janine Benyus - TEDGlobal 2009 Biomimicry InstituteAskNature - A Biological DatabaseBiomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature
JANINE BENYUS on Redesigning Society Based on Nature /71
For The Wild
Life on Earth began some 3.8 billion years ago. Today we’ll discuss systems and structures that have withstood the test of time. This week’s podcast guest, Janine Benyus, is a pioneer in the school of thought known as Biomimicry. Janine invites us to explore nature’s genius systems for creating and proliferating life. Nature as the engineer of life itself, has learned through deep time, how to create soil, clean air and water, cycle nutrients, remarkably continuing to create conditions which are conducive to producing more life. Biomimicry offers the perspective that nature can be our ideal model and our greatest mentor. Janine Benyus is the Co-founder of Biomimicry Institute. She is a biologist, innovation consultant, and author of six books.
SFH #023: Learning From Nature’s Mentors with Janine Benyus, Co-Founder of Biomimicry 3.8
The School for Humanity
As a self-proclaimed “nature nerd”, Janine Benyus, is the Co-Founder of the Biomimicry Institute (a non-profit dedicated to making biology a natural part of the design process ), Founder of Biomimicry 3.8 ( the global leader in biomimicry innovation consulting, professional training, and educational program and curricula development) and author of Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired By Nature. On stage, she has shared two TED talks, hundreds of conference keynotes, and a dozen documentaries such as 11th Hour, Harmony, Second Nature: The Biomimicry Evolution, and The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, which aired in 71 countries. In this episode, we get to learn more about why she believes that the more people learn from nature’s mentors, the more they’ll want to protect them.

Biomimicry: Emulating Life’s Genius and Grace | Janine Benyus
Bioneers: Ecological Design
Applying the lens of nature-inspired design, Janine Benyus shares some of nature’s brilliant answers to the world’s most pressing environmental concerns, illustrated by inspiring real-world applications. Her Biomimicry Institute is guiding business transformation – the Next Industrial Revolution – by bringing biomimicry to the design table, and it’s starting to transform how businesses design and manufacture products. A waste-free, nontoxic, ultra-efficient technology is possible, if only we keep reminding ourselves to ask how nature would do it.This speech was given at the 2003 Bioneers Annual Conference.Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.
