Our food system is in trouble. From farm to plate and back again, there’s a lot we can improve on. We want you to help.

The Biomimicry Institute and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation are inviting professionals and students from across the world to participate in a  Biomimicry Global Design Challenge. Using biomimicry as a tool, participants are invited to tap into nature-inspired solutions to address issues of food waste, food packaging, agricultural pest management, food distribution, energy use, irrigation efficiency, and more.

Design your best nature-inspired solution to a pressing food system issue and you could win up to $10,000, and a chance to compete for the Ray C. Anderson Foundation $100,000 “Ray of Hope” Prize.
