Jump to: navigation, search

This activity is a Field Trip of 2-3 days. It represents the crowning conclusion of the presence and teaching of Biomimicry Expert Ms. Sherry Ritter at BiDL and D&I.


The 'Nature Learning in TianMuShan' field trip will occur over 2-3 days and bring us to TianMuShan(ZheJiang Province), into the official UNESCO Nature Preservation Area (MAB, Man and the Biosphere).


"The ideal event to obtain an insight on how to learn from nature! Also to re-connect with nature and have a breath of clean air!"

Note: Costs shall be fully covered by each participant him-/herself. You will not be able to obtain official fapiaos. BiDL will only loosely organize the event. Please see here for a Preliminary Budget. Subject to change!


Sherry, the biomimicry professional who will be leading our explorations, says:

"As for the “workshop" at TianMuShan, [we will have] print out copies of some handouts. I had in mind some exercises that teach people how to observe nature, how to think about biology from a functional standpoint, how to recognize Life’s Principles in the field, that sort of thing. So, it would enhance our exploration of nature at TianMuShan."
