Living Building Challenge 101

Thu, 9/2/2021 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm


International Living Future Institute's (ILFI) Living Building Challenge (LBC) is more than a performance-based building rating system.

It is a policy and advocacy tool that keeps the community in mind while transforming the greater sustainability movement. LBC's framework integrates a specific place's natural, cultural, and social elements to create a beautiful and sustainably designed building, site, and/or community development. LBC addresses global imperatives such as energy and water challenges through a place-based, holistic approach to design and construction. Each project provides an opportunity to transform the environment, both the built and natural environments, as the project team advocates for stronger approaches to sustainability before and after the project is constructed.

Let's explore the basics together and learn how this framework:

  • Advocates for a deeper approach to sustainable development in our workplaces, governments, educational institutions, recreational areas and media;
  • Grows, shares, and acts upon our knowledge and expertise to help move our community towards a greater balance with nature;
  • Shows that an ecologically restorative, socially just, and beautiful built environment is not just good for the planet, but it is good for those who live here too. 

Join one of our LBC Ambassadors for a live presentation, where you can learn about LBC, participate, and ask questions.

Simply register below and you will receive a confirmation receipt with zoom access details.

After the LBC 101 session wraps up, stick around for the Lehigh Valley Community Council's monthly meeting from 6:00-6:30pm! 

To receive 1 AIA LU and/or 1 LFA CE Credit, you must request a certificate for self-reporting from the Living Future Ambassador providing the training.
