We’re excited to support Seed’s work in a multi-year partnership through our Impact Fund.
Seed was founded in 2014 as part of the Australian Youth Climate Network, and in 2021 became an independent grassroots network.
Seed provides training and mentoring opportunities to empower young First Nations people to build their skills, confidence and networks to lead climate justice campaigns.
Seed’s work is at the intersection of climate justice and First Nations justice: investing in those with the most at stake can lead to a more just society for everyone.
We share the understanding that First Nations leadership is critical to a safe climate future for everyone. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have cared for Country for tens of thousands of years, and are at the forefront of the climate action movement.
Over half of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are under the age of 25. Seed is supporting young First Nations people, centering them as trusted voices on the causes and impacts of climate change and the path forward.
As Australia’s climate movement grows, we need to recognise Indigenous leadership in our work towards climate justice and reflect this in our actions.
Partnering with Seed will help amplify young First Nations voices, and to support their leadership in climate justice. Our customers tell us that climate action and working towards reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are among their top priorities.
