SEEK: Sustainable Everyday Enabling Kit
SEEK focuses on a selected number of framework projects and considers with particular attention the design tools that have been used or that are currently in use. On this basis, and considering different clusters of similar programs and projects, it generates some dedicated sets of design tools that we will call: enabling kits.

That is, to trigger new ideas, support dialogues, promote community building and foster the convergence of different partners. To do that they combine methodologies of user/community-centred design, service design, participate scenario building, solution visualisation, solution simulation and prototyping, real scale experimentation.
