Explore SEED through the new Virtual Exhibition and learn about the SEED Winners’ impacts through the new SEED Case Studies
In the margins of the 2015 SEED South Africa Symposium, which is being held today in partnership with the International Conference on Innovation for Sustainability under Climate Change and Green Growth in Johannesburg, SEED is launching a new interactive multimedia feature which will enable you to look into all aspects of SEED’s activities: the SEED Virtual Exhibition, as well as new in-depth Case Studies that have emerged from the latest SEED research.
The Virtual Exhibition aims to showcase how SEED and its partners are building an enabling environment for social and environmental entrepreneurship. It demonstrates how this ecosystem is supporting innovative micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in developing countries to achieve considerable social, environmental and economic impacts, while also often contributing to climate change adaptation and/or mitigation. Through this interactive market place, you can learn more about the SEED Partners, the SEED support and last but not least, the Virtual Exhibition offers in-depth information, never shown before, on selected SEED Winners through videos and detailed case studies.
At the same time, SEED is publishing five new case studies today. While the value of eco-entrepreneurship in delivering sustainable development is increasingly recognised and harnessed in the development sphere, there is still very little data available on the triple bottom line impact of these enterprises and their contribution to sustainable development. The SEED Case Studies series are designed to help fill that gap by generating insights for policy and decision-makers on the role of green and inclusive enterprises in achieving sustainable development, and on enabling factors that can help them overcome barriers and reach scale and replicate.
