An initiative of the National Council for Workforce Education, the Sustainability Education and Economic Development Center (SEED) supports community colleges and their partners with curriculum and resources to transform educational programs for a sustainable future.
The Story Of Stuff Project
The Story of Stuff Project has engaging videos, podcasts, teaching tools and blogs about the unsustainable present day systems for producing and consuming goods.The resources provided assist students in analyzing the negative environmental and economic impacts of present practices and provide information about how consumption can benefit people, economies, and environments and how students can engage in solutions.
As the Sustainability, Education and Economic Development (SEED) Center is a FREE initiative offered by the National Council for Workforce Education, we strive to provide our users with up-to-date information and materials. We encourage you to submit resources or open-source curriculum for possible posting on the SEED Center website.
Note: SEED is managed by a team of higher education experts who vet and curate resources and curriculum. Thus, not all submitted materials will appear on the website.
