Resources to motivate and inspire!

Biomimicry is an exciting way to inspire pupils to observe the natural world and to develop a creative approach to problem solving by looking at nature for sustainable solutions.

WWF and TES are developing a series of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) materials designed to help young people build their knowledge and understanding of sustainability issues, explore solutions and develop key skills so that they feel empowered to take action. Our Inspiration from Nature classroom resource has been produced to help primary schools engage with sustainable development through the innovative approach of biomimicry.

Learning from nature

The aim of this resource is to encourage 7 to 11 year olds to develop their curiosity about the natural world and work together to explore creative solutions to sustainability, by looking at nature’s own designs.
