• Introducing the Living Community Challenge

    Imagine a city block or a college campus sharing resources from building to building.

Living Community Challenge

The Living Community Challenge is an exciting new program of the International Living Future Institute that helps planners and developers rethink how they design their community-scale projects, providing certification at both the master planning stages as well as for fully built community or campus scale projects. Whether your project is a street, block, corridor, small or large neighborhood, or campus—it has a home in the Living Community Challenge.
