    The International Living Future's annual conference meets in the Southeast for the first time, celebrating the Living Future community, the newest version of the Just program, and a book about the Stanley Center for Peace and Security.

    ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2024 / From May 7 through 9, the International Living Future Institute will host its 18th annual Living Future conference in Atlanta, marking the first time that the event has been held in the Southeast region of the US. "We are excited about this for many reasons," says ILFI CEO Lindsay Baker. "There is great work going on in the Southeast," she says. "There are lessons that we can learn from the communities who are realizing equity, health, and climate gains in the region." The day before the conference, ILFI will host a materials summit with mindful Materials at which key stakeholders will share progress and next steps towards a future where regenerative materials, products, and environments are the norm.

    The Living Future event has often tapped into cultural shifts and innovative practices. This year, the keynote lineup includes:

    • Heather McTeer Toney is an attorney, environmentalist, speaker, and writer. She was the first Black, first female, and youngest mayor elected in Greenville, Mississippi, at age twenty-seven. In 2014, she was appointed by President Barack Obama as regional administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency's Southeast Region.
    • Marquise Stillwell, Founder of Openbox, is a designer and a catalyst for building communities and products across design, art, and culture. With a practice spanning across two decades, Marquise Stillwell's journey began with a curiosity for people and spaces that later developed into a passion for designing systems that make all environments better for everyone.
    • A Regenerative Revolution Panel will explore G.O.A.T. Living Buildings (some of the greatest, and largest). James Ball, Director of Buildings at Greenbiz, will moderate a conversation with Kate Turpin, Director, Design Performance + Real Estate Development at Google, Chris Roe, Director of Worldwide Environment + Carbon, Amazon, and Heather Henrikson, Chief Sustainability Officer at Harvard University. This is about setting new standards and redefining boundaries of scale and ambition in the realm of regenerative development.
