Institute for Sustainable Economic, Educational and Environmental Design
I-SEEED is nationally recognized for designing models of schooling for sustainability and building college and career pathways. I-SEEED's mission is twin fold: 1) To train the next generation of climate scientists, energy innovators, health advocates, and social justice educators from low-income communities and communities of color; and 2) To create "pathways" between world-class research and the creation of start-ups, social enterprises, and whole industries emerging from low-income communities and communities of color. We strive to build an ecosystem of "solutionists" committed to solving the biggest problems plaguing those communities most in need. Together we demonstrate that the application of new frameworks for reducing health and educational disparities, alleviating poverty, and using technology to create thriving communities withoutdisplacement for poor people and people of color.
