Living Future 2015 has ended
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.

See below for our handy dandy online planner! Please note that the sched.org planner DOES NOT RESERVE YOUR PLACE at any educational session or special event (workshops, tours & activities). Questions about the event? Contact us at LF15@living-future.org.
