5. Training for consultants

These tools have been used to help over 60 SMEs in North-West-Europe become more resilient over the past 3 years. We believe nevertheless that consultants and managers alike, gain much from experiencing biomimicry first-hand, and therefore invite you to participate to one short (1 day) or full (3 days) training on Biomimicry for Business Resilience. You will be supported in changing your perspective on change, and be able to use the tools presented on this page to ask systematically: “what would Nature do ?” and apply your findings to drive your business in a more resilient way.

Trainings for managers and consultants are provided on a regular basis by Greenloop (BE), the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LU) and other project partners.

Consultants that have successfully followed the training may be granted more permissive licensing conditions on the tools above, allowing a.o. commercial use.
