Seeds For Change Network is a non-profit training and support co-op helping people organise for action and positive social change. The network started in 2000 with informal co-operation between people who were doing workshops in their spare time.
Providing training, workshops and support to grassroots campaigners is still the main focus of our work, and this is financed by donations and working part time as trainers for NGOs, co-ops and charities.
We concentrate on working with grassroots environmental and social justice activists to help increase their effectiveness in campaigning and bringing about lasting positive change.
The network is currently based in Oxford and Lancaster. All members of the network have a background in grassroots social and environmental justice campaigning as well as in the co-operative movement. We’ve been campaigning on various issues such as peace, roads, GM, and have been involved in setting up and running various community resource centres. We’ve provided training, facilitation and workshops to grassroots groups in several countries, ranging from hairy hippies to grannies’ groups.
As a network committed to a radical ecological view of society we work to the highest ecological and social ethical standards. These take into account not just the ecological impact of our work, but the impact on poorer communities across the globe and on non-human animals. As a network, and the collectives within the network we are committed to our Ethical Policy.
