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 and transition settings worldwide, Gaia Education works in partnership with universities, ecovillages, government and non-government agencies and the United Nations.
Registration for the transformative Gaia Education Design for Sustainability 2014/2015 on-line is now open!
The programme draws on the experience and expertise developed in a network of some of the most successful ecovillages and community projects across the Earth.
Students of all ages learn the appropriate skills and analytic abilities to design a society which uses energy and materials with great efficiency, distributes wealth fairly within and between generations and eliminates the concept of waste.
Students become sustainability designers and change agents by taking an active role in the transition of their existing communities, institutions and neighbourhoods towards more sustainable patterns of production and consumption, as well as more joyful, meaningful and healthier lives.

Gaia Education programmes aim to equip students of all ages with the practical skills and analytical depth to design a society which uses energy and materials with greater efficiency, distributes wealth fairly and strives to eliminate the concept of waste.
Students learn how to become sustainability designers and change agents taking active roles in transitioning their existing communities, institutions and neighbourhoods, to more sustainable patterns of production and consumption, as well as leading more joyful, meaningful and healthier lives.
The Gaia Education Curriculum guides students through a process of design that integrates all key components of sustainability into a holistic project, ready for implementation. Students come out with the knowledge and overall skills to design sustainable systems rooted in the local culture, using available renewable resources. They can apply this knowledge to continue developing their careers as sustainability experts, consultants, and developers.
