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.

Join a community mobilised around the major challenges of the 21st century and united by a deep desire for reinvention, a thirst for imagination and a desire for action.

A space for exchanging, deciphering, imagining and creating desirable futures.

Created in 2015, ENGAGE is now structured around two activities:

  • ENGAGE Action launches Citizen Challenges around the major issues of the 21st century
  • ENGAGE University offers programmes around the fundamental knowledge, skills and tools to become a transformational pioneer. In particular, it hosts the Explorers of our Challenges.

ENGAGE opened in 2019 its campus, Bright City, which hosts our multidisciplinary community, conferences and workshops but also projects in fields as diverse as environment, education, AI, information, health.



The fundamental ambition of the Biodiversity Challenge is to put the economy back at the service of life.

Like the other Citizen Challenges developed by ENGAGE, it is the result of joint work between citizens, companies, associations, NGOs and the media.

The Challenge is now embodied in two projects that will take place during 2020:

  • Supporting 5 companies in their transformation into biodiversity allies

  • Launch a campaign to raise awareness of biodiversity issues in the economic and business spheres

Biomim'expo is a NewCorp Conseil initiative, brand and event.

NewCorp Conseil, a strategy and communication, CSR and Biomimicry consultancy, took the initiative of creating Biomim'expo to promote biomimicry, to reveal the players and the sector of excellence, and to promote research and innovation.

A HYBRID agency At the crossroads of different paths and expertise, we are both a monitoring and forecasting firm to keep an eye on trends, ideas and innovative approaches; a strategy and communication consultancy to enhance and amplify your commitments, actions and projects; and a societal forecasting agency to analyse opinion, identify weak signals, measure expectations and perceptions, anticipate, understand and respond.

A BIO-INSPIREE agencyThis is a new approach based on the lessons learned from the observation of living organisms and their tremendous capacity for resilience. Drawing inspiration from the living world thus becomes an asset and a lever for innovation and paradigm change, a tool for transition accelerator.

NewCorp Conseil has taken the initiative to create Biomim'expo; it identifies news and market opportunities, helps to identify opportunities, accompanies innovative projects, and puts biomimicry at the service of your innovation and development strategies, as well as internal mobilisation and attractiveness. The agency works in symbiosis with the core expertise of biomimicry, sets up multidisciplinary and creative teams adapted to the projects, and positions and proposes itself as a "particle shaker" to generate new ideas.

In this singular period of metamorphosis, we have a unique opportunity to imagine tomorrow in terms of what could be better. The Institute of Desirable Futures is aimed at all those who want to seize this opportunity to invent a more desirable world by giving these benevolent and caring volunteers the keys to reading the present, as well as the creative weapons to participate in the construction of this new world that is coming.

  • Training, to explore the future and better understand the present.
  • Conferences, to get inspired and open your horizons.
  • Tools to better understand the times and to get moving.
  • Workshops, to experiment with collective intelligence and prepare for the Aftermath.

Biomimicry and Territories, round table moderated by Tarik Chekchak at the Biomim'expo digital week 2020

Contribution to Biomim'expo 2021 :

Facilitation of a workshop :

  • Workshop proposed by IFs (Institute of Desirable Futures) and Territory Lab, in partnership with Pikaia : Biomimicry and territories, drawing inspiration from living organisms to rethink territorial strategies. / How can a territory be inspired by a forest or a coral reef to make a successful transition? What can we learn from resilience strategies and the dynamics of change in living systems? How can we take care of the common health of individuals, human societies and natural ecosystems? We offer you a feedback in workshop format, from the Territory Lab project.
