VG’s Drew Shula had a great time attending the Living Future 2017 Conference this past week. The annual event, put on by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), featured keynotes from Van Jones, Naomi Klein, and Kirsti Luke. Topics such as renewable energy grids, net zero energy buildings, and the living product challenge were discussed. Mohawk Group, one of the conference’s leading sponsors, announced that their newest “Lichen” carpet line will be Petal Certified under the Living Product Challenge — a first of its kind for the flooring industry.
Drew was happy to be accompanied by friends from Glumac, Pankow Builders, EcoDistricts, Hathaway Dinwiddie, and of course LA’s local Living Building Challenge Collaborative team. Check out some photos below that were taken at the event, and don’t miss out on the full Facebook album here.
