Biomimicry + the Regenerative Economy

Authors_The Regenerative Economy at Impact Hub NYC on Tuesday July 22 from 7 pm to 9 pm

The #RegenerativeEconomy: Aligning Business and Nature at Impact Hub NYC July 22 from 7 - 9 pm

Everyone’s talking about New Metrics for the sharing and circular economy, but what do we measure, and how? How do we get business standards and economic metrics aligned with nature’s laws and principles of regenerative design? And how does nature make more with the same (resources and energy)?

With 3.8 billion years of R&D experience our natural world is a master innovator and stellar model of ubiquitous design. How can our cities, businesses, products and services help “create conditions conducive to life” like the natural world?

Focusing on economic metrics, business and investment standards, authors Amy Larkin and Katherine Collins will discuss their recently published books that describe solutions to create a regenerative economy – an economy that helps create conditions conducive to life on this planet.

As Janine Benyus (the scientist philosopher who coined the term biomimicry) stated, “We are nature, but we’re really young. Our biological elders are wise … I’d like us to become a species that not only fits in, but contributes.”

“A regenerative economy is one that aligns the rules of business with the laws and principles of nature,” Adiel Gavish, founder of BiomimicryNYC. Join the BNYC network to learn more about this emerging discipline and how we can contribute “more good”, and not just “less bad”.

Drinks, hors d’oeuvres and networking starting at 7 pm, plus two 10 minute talks starting at 7:30 pm with plenty of time for Q&A.
