To get to the meaty part of the video, just hover your mouse over the video until a white bar comes up, and click on the last part of the video. Fairly intuitive setup IMO. I'll be posting more of these as I go through them as there is a lot of stuff on this site.

With 3.8 billion years of research and development on its side, nature has already solved problems that human designers and engineers still struggle with. In this inspiring talk, Janine Benyus provides fascinating examples of biomimicry -- the way humans mimic nature in the products we build and the systems we implement. And because the champion adapters in the natural world are, by definition, those that can survive without destroying the environment that sustains them, biomimicry can contribute to the long-term health of our planet.

I would recommend watching the whole discussion however as she is a fairly good speaker.

For more speakers you can catch them at this link here.
