Have you ever wondered how to create a regenerative and biophilic design? Tried to rethink building assessment or sustainability frameworks? Became aware of the challenges beyond buildings and that we could positively influence those too?
We are happy to announce that we then got the right event for you!
"Regenerative design. The challenge of Living Buildings and beyond"

See you on the 17th of December at 12:00 in the Vorhoelzer Forum to welcome the European Executive Director of the International Living Future Institute, Carlo Battisti.

The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) is a nonprofit working to build an ecologically minded, restorative world for all people. Using principles of social and environmental justice, ILFI seeks to counter climate change by pushing for an urban environment free of fossil fuels.
ILFI runs the Living Building Challenge, which is the world’s most rigorous green building standard, not to mention several other programs: the Living Product Challenge, the Living Community Challenge, and the Reveal, Declare and Just labels. These programs develop a green framework for living in a 21st-century world.
The building and construction industries determine, by and large, how residents interpret their surroundings and built environment. As such, it is vital to re-engineer our cities and towns to correspond more directly to the natural landscapes they inhabit. By reconfiguring how we think of such spaces, architects, engineers, planners, and contractors can create buildings that generate their own energy and wean buildings off the fossil fuel economy.
The Living Building Challenge is the world’s most rigorous standard for green buildings. Going above and beyond LEED certification, Living Buildings strive for net-zero or net-positive energy, are free of toxic chemicals, and lower their energy footprint many times below the generic commercial structure.
The Living Product Challenge takes the robust concepts of the Living Building Challenge and applies them to manufactured goods. Living Products are informed by biomimicry and biophilia, manufactured by processes powered only by renewable energy and within the water balance of the places they are made.
The Living Community Challenge (LCC) creates a new era for community building and a new vision for urban design. It provides a holistic philosophy, advocacy tool and certification process for the vision plan, master plan, construction and evolution of a Living Community. The LCC scales up the innovations made by Living Buildings and Living Products, and envisions entire cities and regions as living entities.
