How to Biodesign #9: Local energy

How do bioneers influence the energy transition? How do we implement the knowledge from physics into design and decentralized energy storage? Expect an energetic How to Biodesign meetup with plenty of talk and action on wind and light.

How to Biodesign

Climate crisis asks for regenerative design. With the meetup series How to Biodesign, BlueCity Lab provides a platform for and by bioneers (pioneers in biodesign). Together with William Myers (curator, author, and teacher in Biodesign), we explore the opportunities from a systemic approach to raw material flows, making smart use of the latest knowledge and expertise about circular design, but also from biotechnology and biochemistry.

The monthly meet-ups facilitate interaction between bioneers who are already working and those who want to get started with biodesign and biofabrication, provide a platform for sharing stories and experiences and actively share knowledge, know-how and insights from the meetups to a broader audience.

This month’s speakers


What to expect?

✱ An interactive meetup where we share inspiration, knowledge and know-how on a monthly theme
✱ A small group of people/bioneers: every guest has the possibility to contribute
✱ A chance to dig into the expertise of fellow bioneers.

About BlueCity Lab

With our focus shifting towards a circular economy, it is time to explore the endless possibilities of regenerative design. At BlueCity Lab, we believe that true circularity starts with regenerative design: designs that lead to a vibrant, biodiverse city in which ecological, social and economic values work together in a positive way. The former swimming pool Tropicana is a circular exemplary city in which entrepreneurs use residual flows from the city to create new products and services. In September, BlueCity Lab opens three wetlabs that are available for bioneers working on regenerative solutions.
