SEED

ICIS, in collaboration with Ducks in a Row, is in the process of developing a school, entitled The School for Education in Development and Diversity (SEED), where sustainable development forms the foundation for all learning.

SEED will become the much needed educational platform for teaching sustainability especially learning about and applying practical solutions. Aimed at people active in the workforce, the goal of SEED will be to explore creative and innovative sustainable solutions across a broad set of topics from food production to virtual environments.

Once established, SEED will support up to 80 full-time and 300 short course participants per year. SEED aims to take the lead in sustainability training and as such help to reshape the educational process by ensuring that sustainable development becomes an integral theme in life-long learning.

Currently, funding from the VELUX Fund for DKK 1 million has been earmarked for a year-long pilot project to establish the strategic and tactical framework for the establishment, implementation and operation of SEED.
