Designing with meaning: Biomimetic and Biophilic practices (workshop)
@Permaculture Scotland, Perthshire. June 14th/2013
Description: A workshop that introduces the way in how we can design with nature and be with nature expanding our Eco-literacy towards a Bio-Civilization.
The atendees will:
Learn how to practice Biomimicry (the emulation of natures’ wisdom) and how to experience our Biophilia (the innate affiliation with the natural world) as one common purpose: the acquisition of an ethical image of our future, where human intention and nature’s intention become one as symbiosis (which in terms of biology means, an interaction between two different organisms living in close association, typically to the advantage of both). It is time to become ethical designers understanding the language of animals, plants, fungi and bacteria in our permaculture practices.
Extreme Resilience: A way to change along with nature (workshop)
@Future Connections. University of Edinburgh, June 6th/ 2013

This workshop will bring an ethical response through ‘resilience thinking’ as an ecotechnic in order to find a natural rhythm for our society, fitting and changing our human intention along with nature’s intention.
The attendees will:
• Become aware from visualizing future scenarios of the need to develop a holistic worldview of our current human endeavors.
• Understand how the patterns found in the natural world can help to connect sustainable strategies.
• Acquire a sense of resilience through comparing and contrasting elements in order implement ethical decision-making in your area of expertise.
