Donate to Biomimicry to Help Future Teachers
USA- Missoula, MT | Sep 26 2012 | (23:15:32 - EDT)
Remember that teacher who challenged you? Inspired you? Made you want to work harder than ever before? Doug Koester's (Director of Resource, Research & Development at the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute) favorite was Mrs. Stelmach, 11th grade English.
Inspirational teachers and classes can profoundly affect a student’s future. These are the kinds of teachers who take educator training courses, participate in biomimicry design challenges, and attend biomimicry education summits.
The Biomimicry 3.8 Institute nurtures the teachers who inspire. Their goal is to provide them with the tools to connect students to biomimicry and connect biomimicry to a sustainable world.
With your help, the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute can offer biomimicry curricula, resources, and training to more educators. Will you join their monthly giving club to help create a stable flow of funds to support their education programs?
"I was a recipient for a scholarship and wanted to sincerely thank [the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute] and the donors for the financial support you provided. Without it, I would not have come [to the Biomimicry Education Summit], and not now be working on four new biomimicry proposals with four different people. I am deeply grateful for your help."
-Jamie Miller, University of Guelph
Your monthly support will help the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute provide scholarships like the one Jamie Miller received, and expand teacher training and networking opportunities to more educators around the globe.
The Biomimicry 3.8 Institute thanks all of those who will advance the role of biomimicry in their communities and the world. Please give as generously as you are able.
What is Biomimicry?
Biomimicry is an innovation method that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies, e.g., a solar cell inspired by a leaf. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul. Read "A Biomimicry Primer" by Janine Benyus.
