Welcome to the SEEDS (Social Ecological Economic Development Studies) Sustainability Program. SEEDS creates applied research and interdisciplinary partnerships between students, faculty, staff and community partners to advance sustainability ideas, policies, and practices and create societal impacts by using the Campus as a Living Laboratory.
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 SEEDS Sustainability Library is a comprehensive repository of applied research and knowledge. It’s a key tool for decision makers. Open access applied research reports contribute to a body of knowledge, learning and action to ignite sustainability ideas, policies and practices, and enable the broader community to learn, apply and build on previous research.
