Event Description

The Living Future Conference is a global gathering of stakeholders from the built environment who are addressing climate, health, and justice issues.

They Living Future 2023 in Washington, D.C., where advocates and thought leaders in regenerative building, climate justice, materials health, and biophilic design will meet under the theme of Advocacy + Belonging.

Living Future 2023 is designed to inspire, educate, and elevate the built environment community, advance the regenerative design movement, and unite a key audience of holistic thinkers from aligned industries and disciplines. Focus areas for 2023 are:

  • Justice and Belonging—Acknowledging and addressing that our climate emergency has differing social, economic, public health, and other adverse impacts on less-resourced populations. How do we address these inequities head-on through short-term action, long-term mitigation, and adaptation strategies? How do we transform our developments and organizations to foster a true sense of belonging within our communities to create communities that are just, affordable, and equitable for all?
  • Impact Case Studies — Celebrating and learning from the successes of project teams, their achievements, and how these teams overcame barriers to create lasting impact.
  • Health + Materials — How do we design spaces and products that optimize physical health and well-being? How do we expand our healthy materials economy around ecologically regenerative, transparent, and socially equitable products and develop advocacy for their use? Share the latest innovations, best practices, and how-tos. 
  • Zero Carbon — How do we drive the creation and operation of zero embodied carbon buildings that rely solely on renewable forms of energy, while operating year-round in a safe, pollution-free, and resilient manner? How do we prioritize reductions and building efficiencies before turning to technological solutions, and minimize and offset carbon emissions that contribute to climate change? 
  • Restoration + Resilience — How do we restore our relationship with nature by reconnecting our human-built environment to its natural ecosystems? How do we encourage the creation of buildings and communities focused on pedestrians, local food webs, watersheds, and our ecological habitats to promote resilience?  
  • Beauty + Biophilia — Recognizing and creating compelling data and findings on the need for beauty and biophilia, which enrich our lives, improve our wellness, and honor local cultures, climes, and places.
  • Advocacy + Innovation — How do we build our movement, discover and share resources, and use advocacy tools to build a Living Future for all? How are our leading practitioners and innovators pushing for better, healthier buildings and communities through engaging in policy and public sector action?
