The EPA has organized a series of three webinars around the topic “Bioinspired innovation as a driver for economic innovation.” The seminars will cover water-related issues such as quality, quantity, and scarcity and increasing revenues, mitigating risk, reducing costs, improving health and supporting the development of a regenerative and resilient society. All will be offered from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern.
The first seminar on October 21 is Ecological Built Environments. Participants will learn about an effective toolkit for bringing principles from the ecological sciences to the evaluation of built and managed space.
Two other seminars are also planned, one on November 5, Biophilic Design for Human Health, which will cover the basic science of biophilia: how humans biologically respond to patterns and characteristics of nature. The third and final seminar will be on November 18. Titled Tapping into Nature: Bioinspired Innovation, it will cover how technology innovations inspired by nature can be used to alleviate water issues facing communities across America.
Registration for Session I Ecological Built Environments is open now.
