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. At Living Future 2022 we will honor Heroes for their commitments to the Institute's mission and its vision for the future. We will recognize them for continually pursuing and improving how projects are designed, materials are specified, and construction is performed. The actions of these Heroes exemplify the leadership required to combat climate change, as well as gender and racial inequalities. 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. We invite you to nominate individuals who are championing the effort to lead the transformation toward a civilization that is socially just, culturally rich, and ecologically restorative.
