Birth Announcement FIC homepage We invite you to visit our new baby! 

The FIC is the proud parents of a new generation website, and we invite you to visit our new baby at (Visiting hours are 24 hours a day, seven days a week.)

While it’s been a labor of love, there’s a reason they call it “labor.”

We’ve worked hard the last nine months to rewrite the code from the ground up, resulting in a site that is more reliable, easier to manage, and offers a sparkling array of new features, including:

  • Communities magazine in Digital Format
    Now you can get subscriptions and copies of all 160 of our back issues as digital downloads (with paper versions still available as well). Digital editions are included in each subscription.
  • Best of Communities Collections
    We’ve completely overhauled our compilations of the most impactful articles we’ve printed over the past 18 years. There are now 15 sets (up from nine) with 85% new content. Each set costs $10, or you can get all 15 for $100. These are available either as digital downloads or as printed copies.
  • Refreshed Community Bookstore (formerly Community Bookshelf)
    In addition to streamlining how information is displayed and the ease with which you can place orders, we’ve added exciting new content, such as the Passive House Revolution DVD and two dozen new books! Check it out.
  • Support for Your Community Events
    You can now sell tickets to your events via our website, and even manage guest lists!
  • Multilingual Capacity and International Subscription Options
    You can now access our site in over 80 languages. Plus international subscribers can choose digital only subscriptions if they prefer a greener option that avoids shipping costs and waits.

How the FIC Needs Your Support Today
