Launched in 2011, the Public Interest Design Institute has held 23 in-depth training sessions to architecture and design professionals around the US. Now entering it’s fifth year, the team behind PIDI–Bryan Bell and Design Corps–has released a lineup of six sessions to take place during the first half of 2015. During the two-day event, attendees learn methods on “how design can address the critical issues faced by communities” through case-studies and best practices from leaders in the field. The curriculum is formed around the Social Economic Environmental Design® (SEED) metric, which was recently added as an option to obtain LEED’s pilot Social Equity Credit. Along with the training, continuing education credits are available for AIA members along with certification in the SEED process.
