Buildings for Change
A core part of our work is sharing the lessons from exemplar buildings so others can replicate the same successes in their own projects. We believe this sharing of information accelerates a shift towards a built environment that exists in balance with the needs of the natural environment, and current and future generations.
Since forming Evident in 2014, we've developed communication strategies and executed campaigns for multiple exemplar building projects. We're currently working on two initiatives to make it easier for projects to achieve success in such campaigns:
- Buildings for Change workshops. These take project teams through the key steps to consider when establishing a communications campaign around a leading-edge building project. Attendees produce campaign canvases, examples of which you can see on this page.
- Platform for Change. We're working on an online place to profile exemplar projects. This is currently in prototype stage, and we're sharing it with attendees at our workshops to get feedback. We're working towards a public launch in 2018.

Note for people who weren't at the workshop: Some of these are hypothetical campaigns based on actual projects. Don't assume these are campaigns that will take place; this was an exercise in thinking through what a campaign might look like around projects.
