Led by ILFI Staff, this workshop provides the first opportunity for a deep dive into the new Living Building Challenge (LBC) 4.0 Standard. Participants will learn about the why, what, and how of the latest evolution of the LBC. Why has the Standard evolved in this direction? Why have these specific changes and updates been made? What are the intended outcomes and impacts? What Imperatives have changed? What imperatives are new? What are the new intents and requirements of the Petals and Imperatives? What are the new certification paths? How do I access the new Standard and related resources and education? How do I register under this new system? How do I update my current project to 4.0, if desired? These questions and more will be addressed in this four-hour workshop.

Come learn about the revised Standard, ask your questions, and dialogue with other participants about new opportunities for catalyzing change in the market. LBC 4.0 provides a framework for bringing us closer to a Living Future. Be one of the first to hear, learn, and engage! Please bring your thinking caps, ideas for projects to discuss, and join us.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 4 LFA credits
