WASHINGTON, April 4, 2023 /3BL Media/ - With a focus on advocacy and belonging, Living Future 2023 will bring 850 leaders together to address intersecting opportunities related to climate, health, and justice. Hosted by the International Living Future Institute from May 3-5, 2023, the annual conference will unite a community of deep-green thought leaders, practitioners, and healthy materials providers focused on the built environment.

This year’s keynote speakers include Erin Meezan, Chief Sustainability Officer of JLL, a global real estate services firm that manages 4.6 billion square feet of property. Peggy Shepard, co-founder and Executive Director of WE ACT for Environmental Justice and co-chair of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council, will also deliver a keynote address.

Acknowledging that the climate emergency has differing social, economic, and health impacts, the event will focus on ways to address inequities through seven focus areas:

  • Biophilia + Beauty
  • Justice + Belonging
  • Impact Case Studies
  • Health + Materials
  • Restoration + Resilience
  • Advocacy Innovation
  • Zero Carbon

Now more than ever, the world needs a community working towards a common vision to make progress on the biggest challenges of our time, climate change, health and justice. It’s time to move past individual projects to coalesce around holistic policy reform at the community scale, hence the focus on “Advocacy & Belonging.”
