Exploring Nature-Based Solutions in Your Classroom – The Challenge

General Information

Through education, students learn about the links between all important social, economic and ecological challenges and learn about the tools to address and perhaps solve them. Indeed, critical systems thinking, interdisciplinarity and sustainability literacy contribute to the creation of environmental awareness and responsibility towards nature and humanity. Therefore, with this study, education on sustainability issues creates strong students who will be relevant citizens and active change makers in shaping sustainability solutions. Inventions inspired by nature, more descriptively named Biomimicry examples come into our lives every day. There are many designs inspired by nature, from household appliances to ships, from underwater to Olympic stadiums. Well, do you know how many devices you use in your daily life are inspired by nature? What is biomimicry and what are its examples, let’s examine it together.

Its aim is to create products, processes and policies – new lifestyles – that are well adapted to life in the world in the long run. Discovering through scientific research that animals, plants and microbes are excellent engineers. Sustainability: With the inspiration of biomimicry, design makes designs that are adaptable, visually compatible and produce solutions that consume the least energy. Learn about key competences and transversal skills for forming eco-conscious students.
