Circonnact explores and develops solutions for circular and nature-inspired travel in the context of the Challenge “Circular and Nature-inspired Travel” at the European Biomimicry Design Challenge.
How can we travel in a circular and regenerative way that is low-carbon? At the beginning of the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration, Cironnact decided to look into nature to explore this topic further and develop solutions. Circonnact hosted the challenge “Circular and Nature-inspired Travel” at the European Biomimicry Design Challenge (EBDC) organized by COBIOM. From January to April 2021, a team of biomimicry, business, research and communication specialists went through a nature-inspired innovation process and developed the concept of a regenerative travel hub called Wandering Gliders.
Wandering Gliders aims to inspire and empower people in the transition to a more regenerative travel. Wandering Gliders offers exciting and meaningful travel experiences to reconnect with nature, people and oneself and by that contribute positively to a flourishing environment and communities. As a platform for regenerative and nature-inspired travel, it connects travelers and travel providers, raises awareness, provides tools for impactful travel experiences and supports travel business to rebuild in a regenerative way with training, co-creating solutions and consulting. The project was successfully presented and received at the final symposium of the EBDC (see the final video presentation). The next steps are to finetune the concept and submit it for the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge. Stay tuned!
