2014 Greenbuild Legacy Project is CSED's Energy Efficiency Education Center
The mission of the Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development (CSED) is to provide broad
community-based support to the Lower 9th Ward in all aspects of sustainability. The organization will use
the Greenbuild Legacy funding to help renovate a 130 year old home to create a sustainability educational
center in the heart of the community.
Once completed, 5227 Chartes Street will showcase energy efficiency upgrades and provide the community
with information and hands-on learning experiences. Keeping its original barge-board design, the Center
will be equipped with "truth windows" giving guests the ability to peek into the construction and see the
energy efficiency strategies utilized in the house. The Center will have a room dedicated to teaching
classes and DIY workshops in the neighborhood.
