Für die bebaute Umwelt hat eine neue Ära begonnen, und nur wenige haben dies bemerkt.
Das derzeitige weltweite Niveau der Treibhausgasemissionen hat große Organisationen dazu veranlasst, sich zu verpflichten, diese Emissionen innerhalb definierter Fristen zu reduzieren. Für dieses Vorhaben ist ein in der Geschichte der industrialisierten Welt, wie wir sie kennen, noch nie dagewesenen Mitteleinsatz vorgesehen.
Während die Energieeffizienz als solche inzwischen zum Standard geworden ist, hat ein neues Paradigma die Szene schnell erobert: „CO2-neutrale“ Gebäude.
Der neue Kontext erfordert einen verantwortungsvollen, kohärenten und transparenten Ansatz.
Hören Sie sich die Experten an, die auf verschiedenen Ebenen an diesem Wandel arbeiten, auf gesetzgeberischer, gestalterischer und industrieller Ebene:

AUSRICHTER DES WEBINARS:
Applied Arts from Nature Residency
October 11th to November 6th, 2021
organised by Passa ao Futuro
The Applied Arts from Nature Residency is an initiative organized between Passa Ao Futuro and Loulé Criativo with the aim of exploring and preserving the intangible heritage and the Portuguese cultural heritage of local crafts(wo)men; re-thinking the historical past, facilitating collaboration and innovation between crafts(wo)men and national and international designers and architects in the creation of new contemporary utilitarian pieces; inspiring younger generations to continue this heritage specifically within the practices of regenerative design.
5 designers and 5 artisans will work with different traditional materials and techniques from the Algarve region – cork, hammered copper, palm, terracotta pottery and tiles.
The residency will take place in the Loulé Criativo space and in the artisans’ workshops, in the Algarve. At the end there will be an exhibition of the pieces in the Gama Lobo Palace in Loulé followed by one in Lisbon.
Algarve has a long history strongly linked to the resources of the territory. With a rich landscape diversity (cork forests, dry fruit farms, mountains, streams and wetlands) that is responsible for profound cultural manifestations and traditions. The use of raw natural materials – cork, palm, clay and copper – continues to have a strong presence in various crafts, however modernity rejects many of these ancient customs. We believe it’s important to celebrate this aspect of the Portuguese and Mediterranean culture.
We ask designers to re-imagine traditional techniques and the application of these materials to create sustainable and even regenerative products.
Innovative design will not only add value by connecting these products to the contemporary market, but will also increase the self-esteem of crafts(wo)men, valuing their knowledge, providing new opportunities and inspiring a new generation of artisans and designers.
The program includes a Regenerative Design Workshop on Living Building Challenge on 18-19 October, featuring Maria Catarina Santos, ILFI member in Lisbon.

Una nueva era ha comenzado para la construcción y pocos se han dado cuenta.
Los actuales niveles de emisiones globales de gases de efecto invernadero han llevado a las principales organizaciones a asumir un compromiso para su reducción dentro de unos plazos definidos y con una inversión de recursos sin precedentes en la historia del mundo desarrollado como lo conocemos.
Mientras la eficiencia energética está convirtiéndose ya de por sí en un estándar, un nuevo paradigma ha entrado en escena: los edificios “carbon neutral” o neutros en carbono.
El nuevo contexto requiere de un enfoque responsable, coherente, transparente.
Escucha a los expertos que intervienen en los diferentes niveles de este cambio, a nivel legislativo, de proyecto e industrial:
Organizadores del Webinar:
Regeneratief ontwerpen en bouwen is de volgende stap voor de bouwsector. Daar is geen twijfel over mogelijk. De focus ligt op het herstel én de kwalitatieve verbetering van de natuur. Wij geven een stoomwebinar over de belangrijkste principes achter regeneratief ontwerpen en bouwen.
✅ 14u tot 14u45: Biomimicry: hoe de bouwsector leert van de natuur – Lydia Fraaije (FRAAi architecten)
Biomimicry is leren van de 3,8 miljard jaar research en development ervaring van de natuur en deze enorme database aan technische kennis inzetten om producten, processen en systemen te ontwikkelen die passen binnen een natuurlijk ecosysteem. Vaak ziet men door de hele duurzaamheidsdiscussie en alle mogelijke duurzame oplossingen ‘door de bomen het bos niet meer’. En wordt ten aanzien van duurzaamheid alleen gekeken naar het gebruik van materialen en het besparen van energie. Door de toepassing van biomimicry, het denken in ecosystemen, en de natuur als model, mentor en maatstaf te gebruiken worden afwegingen ten aanzien van duurzame beslissingen een helder verhaal. Een verhaal met ontelbare kansen en mogelijkheden. Tijdens de lezing krijgt je een introductie in biomimicry en wordt aan de hand van een aantal projecten inzichtelijk hoe biomimicry in de praktijk tot uiting komt.
✅ 14u45 tot 15u30: De Living Building Challenge 4.0 – Carlo Battisti (Living Future Europe)
De Living Building Challenge is dé meest ambitieuze performancestandaard in de bouwsector. Deze visionaire standaard van het International Living Future Institute zet realistische doelen om de positieve impact van een materiaal, gebouw of wijk te upscalen. Het certificatieprogramma stimuleert innovaties binnen de bouwwereld. Het overkoepelende kader vergroot de impact op het vlak van plaats, water, energie, gezondheid, materialen, rechtvaardigheid en schoonheid.
✅ 15u30 tot 16u: Regeneratief bouwen in België: UR.zone – Bruno Deraedt (UR.zone)
UR.zone is het allereerste regeneratieve bedrijvencentrum in België. Deze plek op Gentse bodem staat voor verbinding tussen de mens en de natuur. Het terrein bestaat uit een monumentale villa en een aangrenzend magazijn. De focus van UR.zone ligt op organisaties die een positieve impact hebben op de samenleving en het milieu. Momenteel levert UR.zone inspanningen om het Living Building Challenge-certificaat te halen.
DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A LEADER OF THE LIVING FUTURE REGENERATIVE DESIGN MOVEMENT?
The built environment sector (supply, design, construction, manage), despite decades (of reports, training, strategies, legislation) is simply not making real progress within the sustainability agenda. Business as Usual, only reducing impact, remains the dominant, degenerative discourse. A discourse that has allowed most players to hide behind a mask of doing as little as possible. There is a real and urgent need to now scale jump from the few regenerative (buildings, materials, places, organisations) to where regenerative solutions are the dominant mindsets, approaches and methodologies.
One of the areas where we at Living Future Europe deem a faster and more effective progress is needed is education and communication. On one hand we need to train new generations of practitioners to make living buildings real and solve the sticky bottlenecks (technical, industrial, financial, cultural) in order to scale up our impact. On the other hand, we need to communicate constantly in an invigorating way that regenerative buildings, products, companies, and communities are vital, technically feasible, ecologically robust, and economically viable.
To achieve these goals, we have established the ‘Living Future Europe Masterclass', an online educational program running between September and December 2021, where we want to address the 'why', the 'what' and the 'how' of living buildings, products, and communities.
The Masterclass will include synchronous and asynchronous activities, with a balanced mix of insights, practical examples, and tools. We will work according to an Agile Framework using Agile tools and practices.
Full positive attendance to the program will provide trainees the opportunity to take part at a hybrid event to be organised concurrent with the next COP26 (2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference), in Glasgow (1-12 November 2021).
The COP26 session will be a fully facilitated day (online/offline/hybrid TBD), with external provocations, invitations, and reflections, developing a LFE Masterclass unique and time stamped COP26 pathway to a regenerative future.
This initiative falls within our partnership with the New European Bauhaus. This will include a series of presentations by and for the trainees describing how the seven Petals of LBC are aligned with the NEB. Moreover, in a hands-on training approach, we will present case studies of LBC registered or certified buildings in Europe, that represent leading examples for the ambition of the NEB initiative.

Kitto is a box to do things ‘out of the box’.
It has been designed, developed, and tested on several training sessions during the first COVID-19 lockdown as a deliberate experiment to improve the way we share information, knowledge, and emotions when we are learning
Kitto is specifically built to support online learning experiences, engaging learners in a variety of sensory experiences: the materiality of its notebooks and games, the taste and smell provided by perfumes and tea bags, the sense of sight and curiosity enhanced by its carefully designed fonts, lines, spaces, and colours.
Kitto is a multi-sensorial journey to keep - using the words of Prof. Bruno Munari - the high sensory receptiveness needed to receive data from what is outside us and transform ourselves. And to get in touch with our innovative potential, to be able to have a real impact in our world, shifting to a higher state of awareness and transforming the human structures around us.

This open access book is based on work from the COST Action “RESTORE – REthinking Sustainability TOwards a Regenerative Economy”, and highlights how sustainability in buildings, facilities and urban governance is crucial for a future that is socially just, ecologically restorative, and economically viable, for Europe and the whole planet.
In light of the search for fair solutions to the climate crisis, the authors outline the urgency for the built environment sector to implement adaptation and mitigation strategies, as well as a just transition. As shown in the chapters, this can be done by applying a broader framework that enriches places, people, ecology, culture, and climate, at the core of the design task – with a particular emphasis on the benefits towards health and resilient business practices.
This book is one step on the way to a paradigm shift towards restorative sustainability for new and existing buildings. The authors want to promote forward thinking and multidisciplinary knowledge, leading to solutions that celebrate the richness of design creativity. In this vision, cities of the future will enhance users’ experience, health, and well-being inside and outside of buildings, while reconciling anthropic ecosystems and nature.
A valuable resource for scientists and students in environmental sciences and architecture, as well as policy makers, practitioners, and investors in urban and regional development.
Participation is free of charge, upon registration, but places are limited.
Organised by the Department of Planning, Design, and Technology of Architecture, Sapienza University of Rome in collaboration with Living Future Europe.
Una nuova era è cominciata per l’ambiente costruito, e pochi se ne sono resi conto.
L’attuale livello globale di emissioni di gas serra hanno spinto le maggiori organizzazioni all’assunzione di un impegno per la loro riduzione entro scadenze definite e con un investimento di risorse che non ha precedenti nella storia del mondo sviluppato come lo conosciamo.
Mentre la sola efficienza energetica sta ormai diventando uno standard, un nuovo paradigma ha rapidamente catturato la scena: gli edifici “carbon neutral”.
Il nuovo contesto richiede un approccio responsabile, coerente, trasparente.
