GEN's Metamorphosis:
Introducing a new visual identity

In a time of great transition, change, and uncertainty our organization is evolving in order to adapt to how we can best serve the collective. To reflect this powerfully and align what is on the outside with what is on the inside, we have redesigned our visual identity. 

Ecovillages have been seeding visions of regenerative lifestyles and communities around the world while surrounded by growing social and environmental chaos. And, while successful in their own regions, ecovillages are now being called to come together to play a larger role in the great transformation occurring on our planet now.

Ecological Design Course

The Ecological Design dimension of the full Gaia Education Design for Sustainability (GEDS) course starts 2 January 2018.

In trying to Design for Sustainability, Gaia Educations seeks to consciously reinvent ecological living from the ground up, honing in on aspects such as sustainable production and consumption, regenerative agriculture and food production, appropriate technologies for water and energy systems, green and sustainable building and construction, and weaving it all together through whole systems and regenerative design approaches and methods to achieve one planet living design and development outcomes.

Join the online course and become an ecological designer to ensure that life-supporting natural functions are not only preserved but regenerated whenever possible.
