The time for “Do less harm” has passed. It’s time for the beginning of being; the beginning of a Living Future. Join us next April for Living Future 2015. We’ll explore a genuine sense of place and community as the bellwether of truly restorative design.

The Missing Link: How human survival requires the design community to regenerate

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We understand the urgency for adaptation, we have a wealth of brilliant design ideas, and several flagship sustainable projects around the globe – but we are not making the progress necessary to allow 9 billion people to live well on our planet. It is time for a different approach. One shaped and energized by the larger system. In this session nature will inform a framework to define projects in ways that build constituency, increase funding and address fundamental problems – not symptoms. It is time to paint a vision for a future in which there are more winners than losers.
