The International Living Future Institute™ has announced the recipients of its 2019 Living Future Hero Awards. The new Heroes were recognized at the Institute’s Big Bang Dinner, a focal point of its annual Living Future unConference.

The Living Future Hero award was created to acknowledge and celebrate individuals in the regenerative design community who have dedicated significant time and effort to advancing the Living Future programs and mission. The individuals chosen as our Heroes exceed expectations in environmental advocacy, champion Living Future projects and products, and share this vision with their peers.

“We honor these heroes for their commitments to the Institute’s mission: to lead and support the transformation toward communities that are socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative. We tip our hats to them for continually pursuing and improving how projects are designed, materials are specified, and construction is performed,” said Amanda Sturgeon, CEO of the Institute.

“The actions of these incredible individuals exemplify the leadership required to combat climate change,” said James Connelly, the Institute’s Vice President of Product and Strategic Growth. “In a world full of uncertainty and fear, these bold risk takers are showing how optimism tied to concrete action can create powerful change in each of our communities.”

Our ten Living Future Heroes were recognized during the unConference Big Bang Dinner.
