About Us

SGED Is a creative initiative to bring forth Philadelphia’s 1st Eco-District.

Inspired by our work with the UArts Design for Social Impact program, the grand Vision is to apply cutting edge ecological design to build a Climate Change resilient neighborhood. There are 12 Eco-Districts around the Country, this will be the first in Philadelphia.

Beginning with the eco-transformation of Saige Cafe, this highly collaborative approach aims to start small, grow dynamically through the multiplier affect connected with the zeitgeist. Please join us in this learning journey.

An initiative of The Knossus Project.

In partnership with The Oasis Project.
