Living Community Challenge

How do we create communities that are good for everyone?

The Living Community Challenge is a framework for master planning, design, and construction. It is a tool to create a symbiotic relationship between people and all aspects of the built environment.

The program is a call to action to governments, campuses, planners, developers and neighborhood groups to create communities that are as connected and beautiful as a forest.

Help your community thrive

Living Communities are:

• Nurturing and generous places that promote healthy lifestyles for everyone.
• Net Positive with respect to water and energy. Living Communities generate their own energy and capture and treat all the water they need.
• Create a positive impact on the human and natural systems that interact with them.
