Hawkwood Centre for Future Thinking is a registered charity (no.311767), with a vision to creating a better world for now, and for the future. We bring together people and organisations from across society to support creative endeavour, a flourishing community and a sustainable environment. Seed Festival is one of our biggest conversations, in collaboration with Seed Idea, encouraging ethical living and inspiring action in support of climate justice. We want to help other organisations and individuals who are thinking innovatively and taking the threats to our environment seriously, and you can help us with this! Our work relies on the dedication of volunteers, on the generosity of individual donations and legacies, and on the enthusiastic mentions we receive on social media.
