Event description

Description

Join us for an introductory session on the newest and most rigorous standard in high-performance buildings today. If you are new to the standard or have a few unanswered questions come visit this session. We will be briefly covering projects in the Commonwealth and will have mediated discussion after the comprehensive presentation.

This month's presentation will be led by Holly Fowler, the Co-Founder & CEO of Northbound Ventures. Holly is a recognized sustainability leader, systems thinker, and strategic advisor with fifteen years of international business experience. She has consulted on sustainable agriculture, energy, water, waste, health, and employee engagement to clients of all sizes in all sectors including Fortune 500 companies, national health care networks, public school districts, colleges and universities, city and state governments, and non-profit organizations.

The Living Building Challenge is the built environment's most rigorous performance standard. It calls for the creation of building projects that operate as cleanly, beautifully and efficiently as nature's architecture. Participants will gain a basic understanding of the Living Building Challenge - a philosophy, advocacy tool, and certification program that addresses development at all scales. To be certified under the Challenge, projects must meet a series of ambitious performance requirements, including Net Zero Energy, Waste, and Water, over a minimum of 12 months of continuous occupancy. Participants will learn to describe the key components of the program and discuss the rationale for restorative design principles.


Learning objectives:

1. Understand the basic philosophy of the Living Building Challenge

2. Describe the key components of the program

3. Discuss the rationale for restorative design principles

4. Identify and locate the resources provided by the International Living Future Institute for deeper engagement
