This summer, Amy and Lindsay's BProfessional colleague and dear friend, Jacques Chirazi, is leading the design of a biomimicry summit focused on cleantech innovation and financial tools in his home land of Switzerland.  Check out this link to learn more.  If you are interested in cleantech, innovation and finance/venture fields or just fancy a trip somewhere beautiful this summer, check it out.

Understanding the Living Building Challenge Workshop

While not affiliated with Biomimicry Chicago, this workshop may be of interest to those interested in biomimicry in the built environment.  In fact, the Living Building Challenge was heavily influenced by the thought meme of biomimicry.  Early bird pricing ends 6/4.  I am going.  Join me?  Amy 

Understanding the Living Building Challenge Workshop
Time: Monday, June 18 · 9:00am - 3:30pm
