John Seed is founder of the Rainforest Information Centre. Since 1979 he has been involved in the direct actions which have resulted in the protection of the Australian rainforests.
He has written and lectured extensively on deep ecology and has been conducting Councils of All Beings around the world for 35 years. He wrote "Thinking Like a Mountain - Towards a Council of All Beings" which has now been translated into 10 languages.
In 1995 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) by the Australian Government for services to conservation and the environment.
He continues to work on rainforest conservation worldwide and offers deep ecology workshops to heal the illusion of separation between humans and Earth. He is currently working on a campaign to save Ecuador's Los Cedros from mining.
