Living Building Introduction
Event Description

his session looks at the Living Building Challenge (LBC) petals and imperatives that directly affect people – health, sense of self, and sense of delight. We will look specifically at the less technical and more empathetic petals in the LBC: Place, Health and Happiness, Equity, and Beauty are LBC petals where human-ness lives. We want to explore the potential of these petal areas, while practicing some deep caring and empathy with exercises designed to bring these ideas to life. Participants will leave knowing that the Living Building Challenge is as much about enhancing life as it is about saving energy. Participants will gain an understanding of where they can use the guidance of the Living Building Challenge to make life truly beautiful and… more alive.

A basic introduction to the Living Building Challenge Petal and Imperative structure is recommended for this course.

This event is organized by the Living Future Collaborative New England.
