Collaboration + abundance at #LF19.

[If there is collaboration, there is also abundance].

Join me at Living Future 19 in Seattle for another incredible #LF unconference 🙂

Living Future is all about cross-industry collaboration. We believe regenerative design can only happen when all voices are brought to the table. If you’re interested in making a difference in your community, then there’s a place for you at Living Future.

Keynote speakers will be: Bill McKibben (350.org, Founder), Mary Robinson (Former President of Ireland, UN Special Envoy on Climate Change), Mustafa Santiago Ali (Hip Hop Caucus, Senior Vice President of Climate, Environmental Justice, & Community), Sara Sanford (GEN, Executive Director), Mark Chambers (Chief Sustainability Officer, City of New York).
Moreover, there will be a number of sessions, workshops, tours and 
 happy hour events. Not to forget, the launch of the new version of the Living Building Challenge standard, LBC 4.0 and the new version of JUST 2.0. This is the leading event in regenerative design you can’t miss 😉

I will have the great opportunity to present in two sessions:

The International Summit
Wednesday May 1, 2019 1:00pm – 4:00pm,
Hyatt Regency – Sol Duc Room # 708

Join participants of the Living Future Network around the globe to discuss the creation of Living Buildings, Products, and Communities outside of the US.

REthinking Sustainability Towards a Regenerative Economy: The RESTORE Project

Hyatt Regency – Willapa Room #512
w/ Martin Brown and Emanuele Naboni

Sustainable buildings and facilities are critical to a future that is socially just, ecologically restorative, culturally rich and economically viable within the climate change context. Despite over a decade of strategies and programmes, progress on built environment sustainability fails to address these key issues. Consequently, the built environment sector no longer has the luxury of being incrementally less bad, but, with urgency, needs to adopt net-positive, restorative sustainability thinking to incrementally do ‘more good’.
This session will focus on the work that the COST RESTORE project has been achieving in Europe over the last two years to accelerate the adoption and awareness of restorative buildings. The session will review research, collaboration and projects that have emerged from this partnership of 130 organizations and institutions. The panellists will elaborate also on how the Living Building Challenge can bring restorative principles to building projects through this Action across Europe.

So, what are you waiting for? 
 Ready to jojn us at #LF19? Registration here. See you in Seattle 😉

Carlo Battisti is Chair of the COST Action 16114 RESTORE and European Executive Director for the International Living Future Institute.

Office, Health and Change.

L’effetto dello spazio ufficio e delle attrezzature sulla salute fisica e psicosociale.

L’aumento della produttivitĂ  e la riduzione dei costi hanno portato una intensificazione dei ritmi di lavoro, spesso in ambienti non ottimali per ottenere il miglior rendimento.

Soluzioni come Job and Desk Sharing, Multi Space, Coworking Spaces o Flexible Offices offrono opportunitĂ  per processi di lavoro piĂč efficienti, ma richiedono soluzioni progettuali specifiche, per garantire il comfort e l’ergonomia necessari.

Durante l’evento verranno fornite informazioni per ottenere ambienti lavorativi confortevoli e salubri, ottimizzando i fattori che influiscono sul benessere fisico e mentale. Verranno inoltre mostrati esempi concreti di progettazione partecipativa, misura del comfort e soluzioni di arredo per garantire il «benessere» nel proprio ambiente lavorativo.

Quando: gio 7 febbraio 2019, 16:30 – 19:00 CET
Dove: NOI Techpark, Via Alessandro Volta 13, 39100 Bolzano

Die Auswirkungen von BĂŒrorĂ€umen und GerĂ€ten auf die körperliche und psychosoziale Gesundheit.

ProduktivitĂ€tssteigerungen und Kostensenkungen fĂŒhren zu einer Steigerung des Arbeitstempos, oft in nicht optimalen Umgebungen, um die beste Effizienz zu erreichen.

Lösungen wie Job- und Desk Sharing, Multi Space, Coworking Spaces oder Flexible Offices bieten Möglichkeiten fĂŒr effizientere Arbeitsprozesse, erfordern jedoch spezielle Designlösungen, um den erforderlichen Komfort und die Ergonomie zu gewĂ€hrleisten.

WĂ€hrend der Veranstaltung werden Informationen gegeben, um ein komfortables und gesundes Arbeitsumfeld zu schaffen und die Faktoren zu optimieren, die das körperliche und geistige Wohlbefinden beeinflussen. DarĂŒber hinaus werden konkrete Beispiele fĂŒr partizipatives Design, Komfortmessung und Einrichtungslösungen gezeigt, um “Wohlbefinden” im Arbeitsumfeld zu gewĂ€hrleisten.

When biophilia meets biomimicry.

What does good look like? Join the International Living Future Institute in Paris at Biomim’expo next October, 23rd for a workshop on “Creating Biophilic Buildings for a Regenerative Future”

October 23, 2018 – Paris, France
at Biomim’expo 2018, CitĂ© des sciences et de l’industrie de La Villette
#S3 – LOTUS A3 – 14:30-16:00 – Creating Biophilic Buildings for a Regenerative Future, by the International Living Future Institute.

As part of our Living Building Challenge – workshop series, Living Future Europe, will deliver a series of workshops to enable participants to expand their regenerative design capabilities and integrate concepts into their practices such as Biophilic Design. The event includes the following workshop: “How to create truly biophilic and regenerative buildings and communities”. This workshop is aimed at architects, engineers, developers and product manufacturers interested in innovative and transformative solutions, providing insights from leaders in the green building community through real-world examples while providing tools and techniques that can be applied in the local French context.

Spaces are limited to 60 for this training opportunity. The workshop will be animated in English with possible interactions in French thanks to the translation of Estelle Cruz and Louise Hamot.

Dans le cadre de notre sĂ©rie d’ateliers sur le Living Building Challenge, Living Future Europe propose des ateliers pour permettre aux participants d’approfondir leurs compĂ©tences en conception rĂ©gĂ©nĂ©rative et d’intĂ©grer ces concepts dans leurs pratiques comme la conception biophilique. Cet Ă©vĂ©nement correspond au workshop suivant: “Comment crĂ©er des bĂątiments et communautĂ©s rĂ©gĂ©nĂ©rateurs”. Cet atelier s’adresse aux architectes, ingĂ©nieurs, dĂ©veloppeurs et fabricants de produits intĂ©ressĂ©s par des solutions innovatrices et transformatrices, offrant une rĂ©flexion menĂ©e par des leaders de la communautĂ© de la construction Ă©cologique anglo-saxonne Ă  travers des exemples concrets tout en fournissant des outils et techniques qui peuvent ĂȘtre appliquĂ©s dans le contexte français local.

Les places sont limitĂ©es Ă  60 personnes pour cette occasion. L’atelier sera animĂ© en anglais avec des interactions possibles en français grĂące aux traduction de Estelle Cruz et Louise Hamot.
