MISSION & VALUES

The Lower 9th Ward CSED focuses on coastal rehabilitation, greening the built environment and increasing food security by lifting up and strategically reinforcing community driven goals throughout our work of creating an economically, culturally and environmentally sustainable Lower Ninth Ward.

As we rebuild our economic, cultural and environmental capacities – we initiate, support, stimulate and partner on projects and programs that help us reach our goal of rebuilding an equitable, sustainable and resilient community. The mission of CSED is to create a sustainable environment through education and advocacy. Organizational priorities, including community science workshops and service-learning opportunities, focus on identifying sustainable solutions to regional climate challenges.
