SEEDS (The Sustainable Environment and Ecological Development Society) is a voluntary organisation registered under the Societies Act of India.
SEEDS was formed in 1994 as an informal group of students and pedagogues of the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, whose common interests brought them together and made them carry human habitat environment related exercises beyond set academic targets.
The SEEDS team comprises a group of young professionals drawn from development related fields. In addition, there is a panel of senior associates and young volunteers facilitating the various programmes.
Since its inception, SEEDS has been working on the path to the ideal habitat for communities – a habitat that is sustainable and safe.

When we use harsh words, biting comments, and a sarcastic tone of voice, we plant the seeds of self-doubt in their developing minds....

—Stephanie Martson (20th century)
