A SEED JAPAN (Action for Solidarity, Equality, and Environment and Development) is a Japan based, international youth environmental organisation. The ASEED international campaign was founded in October, 1991 in order to give youth a voice at the Earth Summit (United Nations Conference on Environment and Development), held in Brazil in June 1992. This campaign drew participation from 70 organizations from 50 nations. Following the Earth Summit, ASEED Japan was established as an organisation based on a membership system. A SEED JAPAN strives for a sustainable and fair society and focuses on cross border environmental problems and the social injustices found within these. We aim to change the present pattern of mass production, mass consumption and mass waste, and eliminate the gaps between north and south, different regions, and between different generations. In order to make these changes, the youth of today, who bear the generations of the future, have taken action.
