【Jason McLennan】 Jason was born in a town once dominated by a nickel mine. The landscape he grew up in had been rendered nearly lifeless by years of mining activity and industrial pollution. His neighbors’ efforts to regenerate their natural environment inspired him to become an architect, dedicated to the creation of self-sustaining buildings. His ‘living buildings’ concept doesn’t just ban the use of toxic materials: it places the building within a complete, natural eco system, as if it had grown there like a plant. At first people laughed, but Jason persevered. His ideas are now taken seriously and being put into practice, and Jason flies the World certifying and evangelizing this new way of building. He is a ChangeMaker. https://www.ana-bluewing.com/en/changemakers/jason_mclennan/ #jason
