i2C’s Sustainability Lead, Claire Bowles along with Melbourne Living Building Challenge (LBC) have organised a 7 part event series which will focus on each of the 7 Living Building Challenge Petals. Each featuring LBC case studies led by knowledgeable, inspiring advocates for change.
The first event focussed on the Beauty petal will be a dynamic event featuring two authentic ladies committed to reconnecting individuals and communities with both their ecological system and stories and memories of place through art. We are in the Buath Gurru season on the land of the Kulin Nation and will respectfully open with Mandy Nicholson sharing her inspiring story.
