Course Instructor

Sue Swain

Biomimicry Practitioner (BioWise)

Sue started practising Biomimicry in 1992 when working for an environmental education centre at Cape Point. Here, she questioned why we described nature, rather than learning from nature. Since then, Sue has worked hard to set up BioWise where she is still the executive director and, through education, encourages everyone to live a waste-free, interdependent, resourceful, resilient and regenerative lifestyle.
