As part of the All-One Australia Initiative in 2022 Dr. Bronner’s donated $10,000 AUD to Seed, Australia's first Indigenous Youth Climate Network which is building a movement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people for climate justice. Seed’s vision is for a just and sustainable future with strong cultures and communities, powered by renewable energy. Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity, but Seed also knows it is an opportunity to create a more just and sustainable world.
Given the majority of the population of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is under the age of 25, it’s critical that we invest in the leadership of First Nations young people now for action on climate justice. By donating to Seed, we’re helping to build up the next generation of First Nations young people leading action in communities across the country. Seed does this by providing platforms for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to take action - like their campaign to ban fracking in the Northern Territory - whilst building their capacity to create change in their communities by equipping them with the skills, confidence, networks and plans through our training and empowerment programs.
Why did we choose to support Seed?
Dr. Bronner’s believes in treating the Earth like home. We support organisations working to defend, protect, and preserve the natural world through advocacy, education, and policy change, especially, in support of efforts to mitigate and combat climate change. We also support organisations working for racial justice, human rights and addressing homelessness and poverty.
We recently contributed to Seed’s action at Parliament House on budget day by providing words for a placard. For months, young First Nations people and people right across the continent have been calling on our Government to invest public money into our communities and our futures, and last week Seed took that message directly to their doorstep.
