Nature’s Metric: Rethinking All Aspects of Society

May 31, 2016 08:09AM

The International Living Future Institute’s Living Future Challenge presents a bold new framework for rethinking how systems, products, buildings and communities are designed. Based on the elegant and profound architecture of its recent Living Building Challenge that cites nature as the ultimate metric for success, the Living Future Challenge is now branching out to influence aspects of society.

The Living Community Challenge applies Living Building concepts to entire communities or cities; the Living Product Challenge asks designers and manufacturers to create net positive products; Net Zero Energy Building certification rates successful energy conservation in both new and existing buildings; Just becomes the social justice label for appropriately certified organizations; Declare confirms the merit of nutrition labels; and Reveal affirms a building’s energy efficiency status.
