The Copernicus Insitute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University and the Social Impact Factory are organizing the Seeds Festival, an evening of exchange and inspiration in the SIF building where 'seeds', radical sustainability experiments and initiatives, will be presented by practitioners and students alike.

We are living in desperately difficult times, in which it is hard to find sources of encouragement and inspiration for making a real difference. But if we look beyond the headlines, people all around the world are working hard to create changes in in material, social and political realities and realize more sustainable futures. We just have to know where to look.

Experiments and innovations from the Utrecht region will be paired with some of the most exciting experimental sustainability work from all around the world, in a dynamic market place format. RSVP here, and also let us know if there is something you would like to present (an experimental practice or initiative) and we will see if it fits!

What is a Seed?

  • A way of thinking, doing, institution, technology
  • Exists, at least as prototype
  • Not yet dominant/mainstream
  • Contributing to creating a sustainable future (according to someone)

Sign up if you are:

  • Working on an innovative or experimental sustainability project or initiative, and are interested in presenting your work and connecting with others
  • Otherwise interested in working on sustainability challenges and hoping to get inspired about what is concretely possible
