How can biomimicry inspire new ways of thinking about social innovation? John Lanier, executive director of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation (sponsors of the Challenge's $100K Ray of Hope Prize), explains why looking to nature for solutions to major social problems (like fixing our food system) is so important:

"Biomimicry has phenomenal applications when it comes to technological innovations, but it has so much more to offer. Nature builds and tweaks systems to create efficiency, resilience, and biodiversity. I believe when it comes to addressing social challenges we can look to nature for its systems."
