What is Ecovillage Design Education (EDE)?
This international Ecovillage Design Education course (EDE) is a 32 days course that is certified by Gaia Education() & GEN(Global Ecovillage Network) and is organised and facilitated by GENOA(Global Ecovillage Network of Oceania & Asia) and NextGENOA(Next Generation of the Global Ecovillage Network of Oceania & Asia). recognised as a contributor to UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
The EDE provides students of all ages with the knowledge and practical skills on how to design a society or a community/village which uses energy and materials with greater efficiency, distributes wealth fairly and strives to eliminate the concept of waste. The knowledge of EDE is also adaptable for personal or family level of transformation, in urban and rural contexts.
EDE – also known as the Wing – programmes are based on the four core dimensions of Gaia Education’s Ecovillage Design Curriculum: the Social, Worldview, Ecological and Economic dimensions of sustainability. The curriculum was developed drawing on the experience and expertise developed in a network of some of the most successful ecovillages and transition settings across the Earth.
