A Vision for the Future: A Living Building

We have recently launched an exciting new initiative to construct an innovative new “Living Building” with the CSMNH serving as the centerpiece of the space. By creating a Living Building the people of Connecticut will gain a special landmark that will function as a transformative space to experience, discover, and support the natural world. Bringing together all four of the units of the University of Connecticut’s Institute of the Environment (IoE), the building will also act as a highly visible gateway for environmental programming regarding research, education, and outreach that reflects the university’s commitment to sustainability and the environment.
