A Living Future: How We’ll Live and Work in the Communities of the Future

Jason McLennan

  • CEO, McLennan Design

Jason McLennan is one of the most influential individuals in the green-building movement. Recipient of the Buckminster Fuller Prize, McLennan is founder and chairman of the International Living Future Institute. He also created The Living Building Challenge – a stringent and progressive green-building program and authored six books on sustainability.

In this engaging presentation, McLennan will discuss cutting-edge trends in the building industry with examples from some of the world’s greenest buildings. Filled with case studies, stories, and examples, McLennan will talk emerging trends in energy, transportation, water, waste, and more. Instead of a dystopian vision of the future, McLennan sees the possibility of a future filled with abundance and a road map through the current ecological bottleneck.
