Description

Introduction to the Living Community Challenge

This presentation touches on the methodology of the Living Community Challenge (LCC) program and its components. This workshop will look at the similarities and differences between the LCC and the Living Building Challenge, the built environment's most rigorous performance standard. It will cover the benefits ensuing from a program that requires energy efficiency and renewable energy production to a net positive standard for the entire neighborhood including infrastructure and site work instead of just individual buildings. It will also address the implications of this standard being applied to existing buildings within the neighborhood. Attendees will learn what makes a community sustainable and why certain parameters should be considered when building and connecting a vibrant, healthy and sustainable community. Who should attend? Anyone interested in the green planning and building of sustainable communities and those wanting to learn more about the Living Community Challenge program.
