What is open-source?
Open education is a globally valued philosophy and practice. It positively impacts the way we produce, share, and build on knowledge. At SEED we believe, that everyone in the world should have access to higher education, richer experiences and shared resources. The open-source infrastructure eliminates barriers to this goal. Such barriers include high monetary costs, outdated practices and obsolete social norms, that prevent exchange and equity among scholars, students and educators.
Online and residency?
As an institution, SEED was created keeping in mind the real and the virtual - as two distinct co-existing entities. Online we offer modules, based on Ecology, Music and Autonomy to all members post sign-up. The residency (once a year) will host up to 30 participants and a group of facilitators. In both cases, the learning experience is modular in nature, where you decide and determine what is important for you. Read more about SEED Online and Residency.
Who is eligible?
Any person above the age of 18 is eligible to sign-up and participate.
