About the SEED Network
A Global Movement: A System of Support
SEED® is a principle-based network of individuals and organizations dedicated to building and supporting a culture of civic responsibility and engagement in the built environment and the public realm. By sharing best practices and ideas, these parties create a community of knowledge for professionals and the public based on a set of shared principles. The SEED Network connects similarly minded members of the public with designers from the fields of architecture, industrial design, communication design, landscape architecture and urban planning.
The SEED Network is composed of its members who have taken the SEED Pledge and endorse the founding mission and principles of the network. These members promote and celebrate the idea that design matters and all people can shape their world for the better through design.
The network is part of a global movement that believes design can support a community from the ground up. SEED facilitates action by providing tools such as the SEED Evaluator, which provides guidelines for pursuing a design process informed by inclusivity and participation that can lead to SEED Certification.
