ILFI and Teknion would like to extend this special invitation to join us on the top floor of the Salesforce East Tower for an afternoon summit of engaging discussions on the health impacts of the built environment. What does the future of regenerative buildings look like? What is a thriving community and how do we truly create one? Join us to explore these topics and learn from the research and work of leaders in the field who are pioneering the creation of healthy materials, buildings, and communities. 

We look forward to connecting and collaborating with you in this effort to transform the built environment and create a future of regenerative buildings and thriving communities, together. 

Half-day summit followed by optional tours and drinks.
