We’re excited to let you know that we’ve created a kind of competition/crowd funding/cooperation opportunity for a place to attend the Biomimicry Okavango Expedition with Dr John & Nancy Jack Todd. Enter the Indiegogo campaign/competition with a $20 contribution. The combined contribution of everyone’s entries by 15 July 2013 will be pooled. The total amount will be deducted from the cost of one place ($2,750) on the Biomimicry Okavango Expedition 16-20 October 2013. If we receive more than the cost of one place, we will deduct the remaining amount from a second place, and so on…

An Opportunity of a Lifetime

“Dr John Todd is a visionary, with an uncanny knack for ecology. He is as much artist as scientist, but his medium is biology.” —Donnella Meadows
Okavango Delta
Biomimicry South Africa is excited to announce a unique biomimicry expedition opportunity in Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta!  Two great biomimics – Dr John Todd & Nancy Jack Todd will be visiting South Africa in October 2013 to contribute to a number of biomimicrySA’s water cleaning projects. To end off their visit we’re hosting a learning expedition in one of the world’s greatest wetlands with one of the world’s greatest wetland biomimics! More details below and on our website. Or download a PDF with full details here.

You can contribute to someone attending this expedition – and that someone could be you!
What We Need & What You Get

The cost of the expedition is $2,750. By contributing $20 (or more) to this campaign – you contribute to someone being able to attend the expedition (that otherwise would not have been able to afford it).
On 15 July 2013, the total amount contributed on this campaign will be deducted from the cost for one person to attend. Then, one of the contributors will be selected (random number allocation and selection) to be the person who attends the expedition! (If you prefer to contribute by EFT/direct deposit, email for details)

If we receive more than $2,750, we will offer a second place at the reduced cost ($2,750 less additional amount received), and so on for more places. By funding more places on this expedition – you make this expedition possible.
NOTE – the prize does NOT include return travel to Maun Botswana – this will need to be covered by the winner.

The Impact

We’re passionate about regenerative design and the genius of nature – how we can learn from nature to regenerate ecosystems, water, soil, etc. We’ve created this expedition to provide opportunities to discover the wonders of the Okavango through the lens of biomimicry with special guests that have a wealth of wisdom to share on ecological/regenerative engineering.

We will be creating a documentary of the expedition and sharing that with the world.

Other Ways You Can Help

Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help:

Get the word out and make some noise about our campaign and let people know about the expedition. Who do you think should be on this expedition? – someone that could have the greatest impact on systems design from what they learn from the experience (business person, student, member of an NGO, member of government?).

OR Just like our Indiegogo page and let people know about the campaign! Please also use Facebook/Twitter and the Indiegogo share tools! You can also use this link to SHARE:

“The tightly-knit forests, corals, tundras, and grasslands of this planet are the envy of all of us who thirst for a sustainable and equitable world. As communities, they not only create, but continually heal and enhance their places. Our places, too. What better models could there be?” – Janine Benyus
