"Imperative for us as a species, to individually and collectively divest from certain existing paths and economic structures. Deliberately abandon customary maxims - the dogma of more and more, further and faster... That wealth and the constant growth of capital cannot deliver the promise of happiness and a stable future"
Donna Haraway (2018)

"SEED is forward motion, a direction for learning, regeneration and evolution. A way to reach continuously towards a better self. I believe that, artists, professionals and innovators also need progressive insight and knowledge."
“Nature has always been my source of inspiration. Hence, I love that SEED connects one of the most influential human creations - Music, to nature (Ecology). In our tribe, warriors4elements we orchestrate natural laws in business and lifestyle, leading to a path of transformation."
"Artists influence people’s thoughts and attitudes, which impacts society. SEED is a much-needed platform, given the big ecological predicament we all face. Especially for India, where such dialogues are of utmost importance yet largely missing."
I think SEED is an amazing initiative to empower artists and allow them to connect with nature and ecosystems. Nature is a source of inspiration and healing. Something all artists need in the world today. I’m looking forward to seeing this program grow!”
