SEED (Sustainable Ecosystem Economic Development) Model
What is the SEED Model?
The SEED (sustainable ecosystem economic development) model is a collaborative system that unites stakeholders with unique, valuable knowledge, skills and resources. Together, the collaborations create synergies to help with sustainable economic development in rural, remote areas.
In essence, we are developing a sustainable ecosystem!
We plan to test the system with one or more small pilot projects, working with a few “hidden gem” towns in rural, remote communities.
A critical part of the SEED model involves the incorporation of sustainable practices in every part. As shown in the classic “triple bottom line” approach, each stakeholder uses their knowledge and resources to integrate environmental, economic and social sustainability practices into the ecosystem.
