Facilitating effective design development through a community-centered participatory process that focuses on the SEED mission and principles can be complex. These instructions address this concern and provide a framework for project planning – understanding how meeting project needs through sustainable outcomes aligned with social, economic, and environmental goals can achieve specific SEED performance measurements.Because SEED Certification engages an evaluation process, the tools and activities outlined here are intended to be practical, easy to use guidelines. SEED’s founding principles promote transparency and inclusive participation, specifically from community members, at all stages of project development. Demystifying the process and highlighting the quality of the project’s content through the format of the SEED Evaluator is the goal in providing these detailed instructions. Examples, definitions, case studies, and scenarios are provided to help shape the project reporting and refine the type of responses and applications submitted for each criterion in the Evaluator.
