Gaia Education is a close partner of the Global Ecovillage Network, as we share the goal of spreading sustainability focused education around the world.
This is why we are inviting you to sign up for their ‘Design for Sustainability’ programme, which offers participants a whole-systems design understanding of sustainable communities.
Why does the world need Sustainability Designers?
We live in a rapidly changing world, which is transforming before our very eyes. A multitude of pressing concerns such a inequality, climate change, biodiversity loss, and unrestrained urbanisation are calling for our immediate attention.
Each of us are called to actively be a part of this effort to co-create a healthier and more fulfilling world for all.
Gaia Education’s online programme ‘Design for Sustainability’ will provide you with a deeper understanding of integrative whole systems design, including the analytical abilities, design thinking skills, and a wide range of methods and practical tools to redesign the human presence on Earth - from degeneration to regeneration - one local community and bioregion at a time.
