Who are we?

The San Diego Living Future Collaborative (or LFC for short) is a group of volunteers focused on supporting International Living Future Institute's mission locally. Specifically, our mission includes:

  1. Educating the local community about the Living Building Challenge (LBC) and other sustainable rating systems.
  2. Advocating for local policy changes to remove existing barriers to sustainable technologies and strategies.
  3. Consulting on projects considering pursuit of the Living Building Challenge or its related certifications.

What are we working on?

The San Diego Collaborative is working on several Living Building Challenge and ILFI initiatives

  • Inspiring local action around key sustainability topics by hosting 4 roundtable events focused on Energy, Water, Materials, Health, and Social Equity
  • Facilitating water reuse policy in San Diego by coordinating local municipality and California state code roadmaps

What's coming up?


Living Future 2021: Inclusion + Unity

Date: April 20-23, 2021

Location: Online

The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) is once again bringing its flagship conference to screens around the world with Living Future 2021: Inclusion + Unity! At this crucial moment in our shared history, it is imperative that we come together in pursuit of justice for our people and our environment.

On April 20-23, 2021, we will gather virtually to examine ways to stop the drivers of climate change and address the structural inequities in the built environment. We hope you’ll join  ILFI for this four day event filled with inspiring keynotes + plenaries, networking, interactive sessions, and the Living Product Expo. #LF21
