Living Future Network

Building a world that is socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative starts with you.

Our movement is made possible by your actions, as part of a global team of advanced practitioners who want to go beyond doing ‘less bad’, to actively pursue what ‘good’ looks like.

We invite you to connect with us, and help lead the movement for a living future in your community.

There are multiple ways to get involved:

Ambassadors represent the Living Future Challenges in their region by giving public presentations on ILFI programs.  As an Ambassador, you gain access to exclusive resources, slides, and updates from ILFI to help educate others. We connect on regular calls and in person at conferences, where we strategize and support one another in making client pitches, educating our peers, giving back to our communities, and we have fun while we do it.

To become an Ambassador:

  1. Join ILFI as a Basic Member
  2. Complete the Ambassador application form
  3. Complete the webinar training
  4. Sign and return the Ambassador Agreement form to

Collaboratives are groups of individuals and Ambassadors in the same region that work together to promote a Living Future in their community.  These teams have the Institute’s full support in taking steps to mobilize their communities around the Challenges. Whether it’s partnering with other non-profits on training workshops or gala black-tie events, hosting design competitions, leading advocacy efforts to change local codes, or building LBC-certified homes for people experiencing homelessness, our Collaboratives lead the way towards a Living Future.

We support these teams with a full suite of branding, event and newsletter infrastructure, additional staff time, personal mentorship, and additional resources and benefits. Collaboratives are co-led by at least two Facilitators who work together to plan and host events and other initiatives.

We look forward to working with you for a future that is socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative.
