SOCIAL ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN® (SEED) PROJECTS SOUGHT FOR NEW SEED FIELD MANUAL
The Social Economic Environmental Design® (SEED) Network has issued a request for projects for possible inclusion in the new SEED Field Manual. The manual will feature the best practices of public interest design from all design disciplines that further social, economic and environmental justice.
Projects are sought from across the fields of design including Architecture, Communication Design, Industrial Design, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning as well as interdisciplinary practices or projects involving a blend of disciplines. Qualifying projects may be complete within the last five years or still in progress and should exemplify and reinforce the value of a public interest design practice. Practices that embrace the complexities of social, economic and environmental issues are preferred.
SEED maintains the belief that design can play a vital role in the most critical issues that face communities and individuals, in crisis and in every day challenges. To accomplish this, SEED provides tools—the SEED Evaluator and SEED Certification—that guide design professionals toward community-based engagement with design practice. These tools support a community-centered methodology that is increasingly recognized as an effective way to sustain the health and longevity of a place or a community as it develops over time. The SEED Field Guide project submission form is based on the SEED Evaluator.
