Last year, several IMPACT! Award nominations made a splash in San Francisco. One was the SEED (Sustainable Education Every Day) - a modular living building classroom that meets the 20 imperatives of the Living Building Challenge. Each SEED classroom comes with a curriculum packet to become a living laboratory. These learning spaces, that can be placed anywhere in the world, will have the ability to connect with one another. They will teach children the importance of caring and restoring our planet.
Submit your nomination by Oct. 30.
