The Social Ecological Economic Development Studies (SEEDS) Program creates partnerships between students, faculty, staff and community partners to learn together through research projects that are tested on campus, and applied in real-world settings.
SEEDS projects address a broad range of social, ecological, and economic sustainability issues. Since the program began, over 1,000 projects have been completed through 12 different faculties and schools.
The UBC Food System Project is a collaborative, cross-campus initiative that brings together partners from teaching and learning, operations, and research to improve food systems.
SEEDS is an internationally recognized and replicated program. Applied research projects advance social, ecological and economic sustainability through impactful community-based collaborations.
