This workshop will begin with an introduction to the Living Building Challenge, and an overview of the imperatives and criteria used to measure projects in this system. Using the Cloughjordan Ecovillage as a case study, we will discuss how certain aspects of the Living Building Challenge were met by specific buildings and how other aspects could not be met due to regulatory or logistical challenges. Participants are encouraged to discuss how those challenges can be overcome in the future. Following a networking lunch, participants will be able to tour projects in the Ecovillage, with information presented by professionals working and/or living in the Ecovillage.
