WELCOME to the Gaia Education's Designing for Sustainability: Introducing the Big Picture of Co-Creating a Thriving Future. Global experts advise 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 endeavor to redesign human presence on Earth. So, what does it mean to re-design everything? Rooted in Gaia Education’s over 10 years of international experience in community design education and sustainable systems thinking, 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 all share with all living things. Using examples from ecovillages and sustainable communities from around the world, this course will introduce you to people who are creating communities that tread more lightly on the planet and do so in a way that recognizes the power of collaboration, the promise of regenerative systems, and the value of diversity. You will learn from the pioneers and visionaries who have dared to innovate and bring sustainability resilience, and systemic thinking to urban, rural, and traditional... [-]

Never has there been a better time and a more urgent need to create a more resilient and participatory future by turning our attention to alternative economic paradigms.

Never has there been a better time and a more urgent need to create a more resilient and participatory future by turning our attention to alternative economic paradigms. If you feel stuck or uncertain about what you can do and yearn to open the door to these new possibilities then our e-learning programme is for you. Many know that our current economic system is no longer sustainable, yet few are aware of the alternatives? Our aim is to give you a better understanding of those alternatives and the true meaning of economy and wealth. Participants will learn about existing systems and tools that are useful, and redesign those that have proven dysfunctional based on already tested alternatives. To do nothing is to accept that but a handful of economists and political leaders still believe the answer to our problems is more economic growth – more production, more consumption, more highways, more buildings, more logging, more fishing, etc., ad infinitum. By continuing to collectively pay for this dysfunctional system through our taxes, we are all becoming accomplices in an environmental despoliation and ever-increasing debt serfdom as we remain addicted to growth and the way money is created. "The Third Industrial Revolution will also bring with it a more democratic economy. The distributed nature of renewable energies necessitates collaborative rather than hierarchical command and control mechanisms. This new lateral energy regime establishes the organizational model for the countless economic activities that multiply from it. A more distributed and collaborative industrial revolution, in...
