Biotecnología, Biomedicina y Biomimesis en armonía con la Naturaleza, nuevas perspectivas

17.Sep - 18. Sep, 2024 Cod. Z25-24

Description

Through this Summer Course, the aim is to get the public to analyze and understand the importance of communicating and establishing bridges between scientific, technological and social disciplines that work in harmony with Nature,

in the current climate emergency situation. Furthermore, it is intended that they understand and participate in the solutions proposed from the different disciplines: Science, Technology, Medicine, Economics and Architecture, among others with the common denominator that they are harmonious with Nature. Innovative programs such as Harmony with Nature of the United Nations will be sought, which advocates providing Rights to Nature; as well as, transdisciplinary solutions consistent with the previous program such as Biomimicry.
