Contemplative Science: A Regenerative Approach to Design and Innovation

Creating sustainable technology for the good of society shouldn't be isolated to just energy, building or agriculture, but intimately woven into our scientific culture and practices. With the burgeoning of sustainable design sciences, such as biomimicry and permaculture, an opportunity arises to interface these principles directly with the scientific method. In this discussion based workshop we will confront some of the limitations of our current scientific paradigm and see what tools can be used to develop resilient, regenerative and contemplative scientific communities. We will review the contemplative aspects of biomimicry and the systems-based thinking and ethical frameworks of permaculture. With this context we will engage in small group discussions to explore what an authentic and intentional design process could look like. Presented By Kendra Krueger of Vesica Pi Labs LLC.
