Abstract

I am working with the International Living Future Institute as an Ambassador Presenter, and recently I have become a Collaborative Facilitator in the Ambassador Network, providing educational resources for the Living Building Challenge. The Living Building Challenge is the visionary path to a restorative future, the description of which is provided by the Institute on the organization's website: www.livingbuildingchallenge.org. The Institute describes the Living Building Challenge in the following way.

The Living Building Challenge defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to minimize the gap between current limits and ideal solutions. This certification program covers all buildings at all scales and is a unified tool for transformative design, allowing us to envision a future that is socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative. Whether your project is a single building, a park, a college campus, or even a complete neighborhood community, the Living Building Challenge provides a framework for design, construction, and the symbiotic relationship between people and all aspects of the built environment. The Institute has provided a very informative and inspiring one-hour PowerPoint presentation for ambassador presenters to use it as an educational tool. As this is a volunteer effort, the program was free of cost. The attendees are also eligible for one AIA/GBCI Learning Unit.
