Seeding our Future (SOF) is a non-profit initiative, started in 2017. The founder and main funder is Alan Heeks, a social entrepreneur and writer.
Our partner organisations include the Schumacher Institute, Westminster Centre for Resilience, The Centre for Future Thinking at Hawkwood College and others. Our local partners in the Bridport area include Bridport Local Food Group and Transition Town Bridport.
Alan has been exploring resilience for many years: he has led numerous workshops on this theme, and set up Hazel Hill Wood, a residential centre showing how to learn resilience from natural ecosystems. He is now working closely with Professor Jem Bendell’s Deep Adaptation approach to climate change, exploring in particular how this can be applied with businesses, communities and public service providers.
