About us

SEA Movement was founded by people who are passionate about preserving Mother Nature. SEA Movement expands to Save Earth from Anthropogenic Movement.  Registered as a non-profit trust in Chennai during October 2008, we have been working continuously on developing sustainable solutions. 

Initially we have participated in Community based environmental development program (CBED) under Chennai metropolitan development authority (CMDA). It is about making the community understand the stake they have in the local environmental assets like Pond, Park, Trees and Water systems. The Program includes Pond renovation, Park development, Burial ground development, Construction of Storm water drain and Tree planting. We were involved in engaging the community in the process and documenting the project which was implemented in the sub urban panchayats of Chennai such as Pallikarani, Madambakkam, Mangadu, Perungalathur, Chitlapakkam and many other Town and special village Panchayats. 

With that exposure of the status of urban environment, urban inhabitants and their priorities, we started looking at solutions which work on the real cause instead of the effects it creates. We could see that Urbanisation and Globalisation are the major cause for the problems we face today. In India, more than 35% of population lives in urban areas and it leads to lot of chaos in urban environment. Emissions from the urban areas create ‘urban heat island effect’ which leads to short time heavy rainfall in cities especially in the coast.  To reduce the growing urban areas, we should shift our focus to Agriculture and production based livelihoods in the rural areas. 

We should increase the chances for a farmer and his / her family to stay back in the village doing agriculture and its allied functions. Many social enterprises should be developed in rural areas giving employment opportunities to the rural youth. These social enterprises should focus on areas such as water, food, environment, energy and sustainable development. These areas need skilled workers as well as enterprises to cater the rising demand as we have spoiled the entire basic environmental infrastructure which were intact earlier. 

This is our approach now! Developing social enterprises, making the community ready to adapt the effects of climate change both in urban and rural areas, mitigating the emissions are the top priority.
