Veracruz Biomimicry and Design Expedition 2019

Start: 
Fri, 2019/07/05 - Sun, 2019/07/14
Location: 
Veracruz, Mexico

This expeditionary workshop will open your eyes, your brain, and your heart to new ways of engaging in the world around you. Along with international colleagues from a variety of disciplines, you’ll explore ten different ecosystems (alpine, grassland, conifer forest, desert, volcanic lake, cloud forest, tropical evergreen forest, tropical oak forest, rainforest, mangroves) in Mexico’s beautiful Veracruz State as you learn to see nature differently and work your way through the biomimicry methodology to solve a design challenge. During this workshop, you’ll also be invited to hike, swim, raft, take a night walk through the rainforest, explore with all your senses, and learn in an open-air classroom.

The learning begins in the heart of Mexico City with a lecture and introductory session in the classroom on July 5. The next day we’ll leave for Veracruz and begin a 7-day learning adventure in which we’ll explore each of those diverse ecosystems while deepening our ability to listen to, learn from, and echo nature. En route to Veracruz, we’ll spend one night in a local village before arriving at the beautiful Talloguaya Camp located in a rainforest preserve along the shore of the Bobos River.

This event is designed for teachers, faculty, students, and professionals seeking an intensive, interdisciplinary, and experiential introduction to biomimicry in a vibrant natural setting.
