Mission of the National Academy of Environmental Design
The National Academy of Environmental Design serves the public by promoting the flourishing of individuals, communities, and the natural world through the sustainable design and stewardship of human and natural environments.

Purpose of the National Academy of Environmental Design
Pressing and catastrophic challenges face the United States and the world, including precipitous climate change, species extinction, and a wide range of epidemics and toxins affecting human health. The factors that cause these problems are complex and often poorly understood even when recognized, but many such problems involve the communities, landscapes, buildings, and products people occupy and use.

The National Academy of Environmental Design has been created to address these problems through the diverse knowledge and practical expertise of the environmental design and related disciplines.
