It's 8:00am and you are wide awake from a speed boat ride that took you across the sapphire-colored waters surrounding Central America. When the boat stops, you are staring at an island so untouched by mankind that you wonder if this is a movie set. Your instructor tells you to put on your goggles because there a few thousand fish she would like you to meet. You dive in, expecting to be jarred by the cold, but are greeted instead with bathtub-warm water and underwater creatures you have never seen in your life. Class has just begun.
Next Friday, April 26, marks the last day to apply for the Biomimicry Professional Certification Program. The globally renowned program is a part-time, two-year, master's-level course designed to empower change-agents who are passionate about a world mentored by life's genius. Biomimicry 3.8 is doing what no other design, engineering, business, or sustainability program is offering: delivering a deeply immersive experience while learning from some of the most spectacular biomes across the planet. We are thrilled to share with you more information about the dramatic ecosystems you will visit as part of the Biomimicry Professional Certification Program. ("BProfessional"). It was designed for people like you, designers who are serious about learning and applying biomimicry to new products and services.
Over the two years you will travel from the mountains of North Carolina to African plains of Botswana to the bioluminescent waters of Vancouver, Canada, and three other locations (like Costa Rica). We hope to see your name among the applicants, and, more importantly, to meet you in Montana in the heart of the Rocky Mountains for our kick-off session this September.
