Biologist, author and innovation consultant Janine Benyus receives the 2022 RSA Bicentenary Medal for “outstanding contribution to regenerative design”. 

Janine Benyus is a pioneer and champion of biomimicry – innovation inspired by nature. An educator and adviser to industry and innovators worldwide, she encourages designers to approach each new challenge with the question: “what would nature do?”  

As she accepts the 2022 RSA Bicentenary Medal award, at a time when existing economic and social systems are ripe for re-design, Janine urges us to look to nature’s genius - evolved and adapted through 3.8 billion years of R&D - for the solutions that will help guide us to more resilient, rebalanced and regenerative futures, for people, place and planet.
