Through learning together for sustainability we can build a better, more equitable world, and an ecologically sustainable future for all life on earth.

The SEEd approach

SEEd is not a charity with ‘the answer’ – no single or set of answers exist to ‘save the planet’.

We do, however, have a philosophy of approach that creates a long-lasting and, hence, sustainable effect. By unleashing the power of people’s learning and creativity we believe humanity will be better equipped to make sustainable decisions as individuals, communities and societies. We know, through years of experience gained working with people across society, that we can achieve transformational change by promoting critical, systems and futures thinking as part of a fundamental repurposing of all learning, wherever it takes place. Understanding how the systems that support all life on Earth function and interrelate, and the need to work with those systems rather than against them, is core to our vision of learning.

Our new strategy and action plan is predicated on feeding and nurturing a movement for change, not the building of an ever-growing charity.  We commit to being small and focussed, effective and innovative. Our programmes are designed to be replicable, scaleable and, whenever possible, open source. Our ultimate aim is to reach a point where we no longer need to exist.
