The Socialist Environmental Alliance (SEA) was a political party which operated in Northern Ireland, based largely in the city of Derry.

The SEA contested the Northern Ireland Assembly 2003 election in the East Londonderry and Foyle seats (reflecting the party's Derry base). They polled poorly in East Londonderry, with candidate Marion Baur gaining only 137 first preference votes (only 0.4% of the total), although in Foyle Eamonn McCann managed to gain 2,257 first preference votes (5.5% of the total).

They also contested the 2004 elections to the European Parliament, with Eamonn McCann their candidate. He managed to win 9,172 first preference votes, or 1.6% of the total cast. McCann then stood in the 2005 general election in the Foyle constituency, winning 3.6% of the vote.

McCann again stood for the organisation in Foyle in the 2007 Assembly election. The group was dissolved in 2008 with most of it folding into the People Before Profit Alliance.
