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.
