The Living Future Institute of Australia Symposium brings thought leaders and regenerative design practitioners together to inspire change in Australia’s built environment. It emboldens professionals to join the movement and think about how their work can promote social justice, cultural richness, and ecological restoration. The 2022 Symposium theme, ‘Regenerate’ calls for everyone involved to lead and collectively build the vision of a ‘Living Future’ that seeks solutions to the most challenging issues of our time.


Date: 7-11 March, 2022

Location: Melbourne, Sydney + online

Regenerate will be held over five days, in two cities, in-person and online. We’ll gather in person in Melbourne at Petal Certified Burwood Brickworks and in  Botanic House in Sydney.

All online broadcast sessions will be presented on Zoom.



The in-person venue for Melbourne is Petal Certified Burwood Brickworks, the first shopping centre in the world to receive a Living Buiding Challenge Certification. In Sydney, the venue will be Botanic House surrounded by nature in the Royal Botanic Gardens.


The Symposium’s theme is ‘regenerate’. This is in part, to inspire attendees with the Living Building Challenge’s regenerative design approach. It also pays homage to those that have faced the challenge of the pandemic and our climate crisis and have evolved into industry leaders.

Behind the artwork for this year’s Symposium.

The simple images developed for the Symposium reflect and honour the power of landscape, plants and animals. Their power is in their beauty, unique and organic forms, and interconnectedness. I hope they remind us there is no teacher like our Mother. Now is the time to learn to love her, and be loved by her, more fully.
