A life-altering experience

If you have dived into the depths of our immersive Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) Face-to-Face programme at a community somewhere in the world, you will know it is a life-altering experience. Through it, many have found deeper purpose and meaning, and have even made making a difference in their community, their life’s work. Others have seen and learnt things that moved them to become more effective world workers. This is also true for those who have studied our online Design for Sustainability (GEDS) programme and deepened their understanding of the four dimensions of sustainable community design.

Change Agents

What all our students share, is a hunger to find a place and space to act as agents for positive change. Many have wished to create their own Gaia Education inspired workshops, facilitate meetings, inspire or become social entrepreneurs and much more. Yet, we know many who do not feel confident enough to deliver our programme content to diverse and sometimes challenging audiences. This is about to change. You are about to change, as you receive all the necessary tools to become a Gaia Education Certified Trainer.... [-]

Global experts advise that in order to stir humanity towards sustainability, we need to re-design everything, from our homes to our food, energy, transport and economic systems. This transformation needs to occur on a grand scale and take into consideration people, planet and livelihoods to arrive at a holistic balance as we humbly endeavour to redesign human presence on Earth.

So, what does it mean to re-design everything?

Rooted in Gaia Education’s international experience in community design education and sustainable systems thinking over more than ten years, we offer you this short course that highlights what is possible, what is being done, and what remains to be done, to transform society, while addressing the most pressing issues of our times. Designing for Sustainability invites a cross-generational process of critical thinking, the exploration of innovative solutions and social entrepreneurship, and is inspired by what Thich Nhat Hanh has called ‘interbeing’ – the connection we share with all living things....

Energy is the golden thread that connects economic growth, increases social equity and an environment that allows the world to thrive. Development is not possible without energy and sustainable development is not possible without sustainable energy.

This online programme will give a comprehensive overview of renewable energy as a means to enable sustainable development at a global scale. It will present the case for how renewable energies represent both an environmental necessity and an economic opportunity.

The programme supports the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative (SE4ALL), which aims to provide universal access to modern energy services, and double the worldwide rate of improvement in energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. Energy underpins all of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which this course is also closely aligned with.... [-]

We need to learn to question our basic assumptions and learn to ask deeper questions that help us to transcend and include multiple perspectives if we hope to steer humanity towards an uncertain future with wisdom, foresight, and precaution.

The course, which includes an orientation period, lasts for eight weeks. We suggest you dedicate a minimum of 10 hours a week to the course, in order to receive maximum benefit from it.... [-]
