The Scottish Ecological Design Association, has been created about 30 years ago by Howard Liddell and Sebastian Tombs. The goal of this organisation: connecting people who want to share their knowledge on sustainability through conversation, sharing resources and information. Catherine Cosgrove is now the Chair of SEDA. In this conversation we are talking about how sustainability in architecture evolved in the last 30 years in the UK and what was the role of organisations like SEDA into this evolution.
