September 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Humans are changing Earth’s natural systems in rapid and unprecedented ways. This has propelled our planet into a new geologic era: the anthropocene. How do we navigate these changes we’ve caused, where can we have positive impacts…and where do we find hope? We’re bringing in six experts with a diversity of perspectives to speak on these very things. Join us!

Our first fall speaker is Jakki Mohr, Regents Professor of Marketing and the Gallagher Distinguished Faculty Fellow at the University of Montana. Join us for her lecture, Business Innovations Inspired by Nature: Biomimicry.
How can nature inspire more effective and sustainable design? Learn how companies use biomimicry to solve technical and engineering challenges and to develop breakthrough innovations.
