Dear people,

because of very less interest about the EDE here in Latvia this summer we come the sad conclusion that it is not possible to hold the course. Our EDE team made decision to cancel the EDE course this summer. So we can suggest you other EDEs in Europe (for example Denmark and Italy) . Down below you will find links to other EDEs. For the one of you who get funding s from ERASMUS we can write a official letter to your agency. Please let us know, if needed. 

Here some links to other EDEs:
Denmark :
Italy :
The whole GAIA program :

Sorry for the inconvenience and the team hope for your understanding.

Thomas and the whole Latvian team

Ecovillage Design Education (EDE)

The EDE-course by Gaia Education in Smiltene from 13.07 - 09.08.2015

The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) course is a programme of GEN partner, Gaia Education. The curriculum was developed over a number of years by a group of Ecovillage educators from around the world calling themselves GEESE (Global Ecovillage Educators for Sustainable Earth). Launched in Findhorn in 2005, the Ecovillage Design Curriculum is an official contribution to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development 

The programme is a 4 week holistic introduction to designing sustainable settlements based on the GEN "living and learning" principle. In four weeks you get an overview of all you need to know to design sustainable settlements all over the world. Gaia Education promotes a holistic approach to education for sustainable development by developing curricula for sustainable community design. While drawing upon best practices within ecovillages worldwide,
Gaia Education works in partnership with universities, ecovillages, government and non-government agencies and the United Nations.
