Focusing on trees and the forest to find in business new and impactful solutions.

In the heart of a thousand-year-old forest in Auvergne at its climax, populated by pectinated firs and beeches, managers, executives and their teams come to find new paths of action and organisation thanks to the biomimicry experienced in the forest. For them, it may be a question of building their roadmap, of collectively relaunching, innovating, choosing, moving forward together, surviving, transforming, working on their raison d'être (of beech) or giving meaning.

For them, it is a question of decentring and centring on the forest, of being surprised and learning together, to unblock frozen situations, to find a space and time for renewal and serenity, to find balanced, new and original solutions.

4 axes guide the approach:

  • connecting to the livingIt's about energy, about knowing how to be,
  • exploreTo work on its length, its raison d'être, to bring out the new,
  • operateCreate a product, enhance it and recycle it,
  • and cooperateThe aim is to work as a "system echo".

Sylvomimicry was born out of cooperation between experts

  • Charles-Etienne Dupont in forest management and continuous cover silviculture,
  • Pierre Gérard in creativity, hybridization, biomimicry, and the exploration of desirable futures,
  • and Catherine Redelsperger, in leadership, cooperation, systemics and collective intelligence.

Pierre Gérard's speech at the Biomim'expo digital week 2020




This year while addressing the U.S. Congress President Emmanuel Macron
stated: " There's no Planet B" further placing this phrase into the
mainstream media and reminding the world that climate change is real. But
does this knowledge change something in our choices and how we live our
daily lives? How can we motivate numerous individuals to change their
habits and live lives that benefits both people and the planet? That kind
of life-changing motivation comes from a profound personal revelation!

Anastasia Talkova-Crestani, architect, artist on her work :

Environmental Generational Amnesia , a concept introduced by Peter H. Kahn. His work addresses " from a psychological stance - two words trends that are powerfully reshaping human existence: the degradation if not distraction of large parts of the natural world, and unprecedented technological development , both in the therme of its computational sophistication and pervasiveness.These ideas are incredibly important as we navigate creating a balance between our natural and technological worlds.

We should investigate and find a new ways and forms of emergence of human-nature co-relations in the era of mondialisation.
Through the concept "architecture - a new form of natural medicine" I engage myself to bring bio-inspired solutions to humans in the "non places "* in the aim to restore and maintain the degree of homeostasis and well-being, to reconnect to Natureand inspire to take care of oneself and the other living forms that make up this world".
