This Introductory session will be focused on the philosophy behind the Living Building Challenge, an overview of the standard itself and how it has been a key tool in helping to drive the transformation of the built environment, creating healthier, more enriching spaces to live, work and play while restoring ecosystems and communities.
You will also gain insight to Trinidad’s first Living Building model project (The RegenVast Smart Living Home) and learn how you can become part of this global movement, creating positive changes in your community, country and region!
We look forward to connecting with you and in helping to spread the awareness while empowering others to take a step in creating what we call a Living Future, one which is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.
This is open to the public and we encourage participants from the Caribbean region – Architects, Engineers, Designers, Developers, Sustainability Consultants, Environmentalists, Contractors, Landscape Architects, Building and home owners, students, Change Agents, Policy makers, etc.) are all welcomed!
