As we pause business as usual during this current pandemic, we have an opportunity to reimagine how we design buildings and communities for resilience in the face of global health threats as well as increasingly frequent climate-driven disasters. Living Buildings and Living Communities inherently contain design elements to increase. With the global spread of human epidemics such as Covid-19, we are quickly learning that these design strategies may no longer be optional – that designing for health will be critically necessary.
This online summit will bring design, public health and urban planning experts together to talk about what we are learning from the current health crisis and how this experience might influence how we design the built environment in the future. Join industry leaders to discuss how buildings and building systems can be adapted for greater health outcomes. Hear from community leaders and urban designers how cities and infrastructure may change to adapt to altered patterns of urbanization as a result of the current learning from this unique crisis. Using ILFI’s dynamic online meeting platform, participants will be engaged to ask questions, share tools and solutions, connect to others and take on challenges to scale up their own action toward a healthier living future.
