In response to the ongoing climate crisis, Yale Divinity School is constructing a regenerative student residential complex—the Living Village. The Living Village dares to answer one of the most profound theological challenges of our time and sets new standards for sustainability as the largest residential complex on a university campus to pursue the Living Building Challenge.
