Stimulating Enterprising Environments for Development and Sustainability (SEEDS)
Start date: Dec 31, 2011, End date: Jun 29, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Derelict buildings and empty spaces threaten economic competitiveness, territorial cohesion and performance. SEEDS addresses the urgent need for revised policies and robust EU steer by promoting innovative land-use strategies and modern governance. It develops skills and opportunities for those furthest from labour markets, transforming growth prospects. It tackles changing land-use patterns demanded by recent economic challenges and delivers evidence-based spatial planning tools and instruments. Achievements: SEEDS exerted a far-reaching and durable legacy by delivering improved and coordinated planning policy. It delivered shared strategies covering key substantive issues in land-use, as well as addressing cross-cutting concerns, ensuring and proving transferability of its solutions.SEEDS delivered a pan-North Sea Region Spatial Planning Forum. It proposed new coordinated spatial planning policies, delivered via rigorous testing of innovative interventions that were adapted, adopted and transferred between partners, proving their generic applicability.This underpinned an important SEEDS result, a new Charter for Reuse & Regeneration, with a strong mandate from stakeholders to effect coordination across Member States. Another important result involved skills development opportunities for citizens, provided through transnationally designed workshops and training. This provided citizens with the tools to use vacant land, reducing their own worklessness and dependency, and delivering the economic impulse needed in deprived areas.
