SEED: Social Economic Environmental Design

REPORTING:  RABBIT ZIELKE

Bryan Bell is a design activist and author advocating for awareness of social impact in design projects.  SEED: Social Economic Environmental Design is a certification program that looks beyond the physical design and considers the social implications.  Similar to the LEED program for environmentally friendly building techniques, SEED works with communities to identify goals and social issues and develops measures of the effect the design project will have on those goals.  SEED continues to monitor and measure the outcomes over an extended period of time.

During the month of April 2010, the cost of obtaining SEED certification is free.
