Welcome to the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED)

Many institutions talk about inter-disciplinary approaches and problem–driven research, SEED actually does it.

SEED is unique in Canada, and possibly the world, in its focus on the intersection of environment and sustainability, on the one hand, and business and development, on the other. With programs in sustainability management, international development practice, environment and business, local economic development and social innovation, SEED is dedicated to developing the knowledge, tools and expertise to integrate business and development activities with environmental and social goals. Learn more here
