SEED

SEED is an award-winning Non-Profit and Public Benefits Organization that operates from the Cape Flats in South Africa.We focus on growing real resilience in people and restoring communities from within.

SEED believes that change happens through people – it is capacitated and committed individuals that can change the world. South African are the most incredible, resilient people and it is within our means to grow resilient socially cohesive communities - localizing food systems, growing circular economy enterprises and giving our incredible youth the chance to thrive by working at something meaningful.

Resilience and Climate Change

Resilience is our capacity to recover from shocks and stresses.  

The predictions for climate change are increases in these shocks and stresses; including disruption to our food lines, increased fires, water shortages and rising temperatures.
We believe there is urgent work needed to grow the resilience of our people to survive and thrive what is coming.

In some ways Covid-19 and the lockdown has been like a dress rehearsal for climate change impacts: shining a light on our vulnerabilities and giving us a unique window to skill up our people start to work towards the world we want to live in.
