Join our Ecological Design e-learning programme starting in January with global participants from 16 countries.

This programme is particularly for you if you believe that now is the time to build a fairer and more sustainable world.

Over the 8 week course of Ecological Design you will learn how to i.e.

  • calculate your carbon footprint and design how to be carbon neutral
  • identify water cycles of an ecosystem and how to harvest them
  • compare technical differences between renewable energy sources
  • select building materials and architectural styles best suited to a specific bioregion
  • design a local food production scheme for a village or a neighbourhood

Our e-learning programme has been attracting hundreds of students to educate themselves and gain new skills to re-design their presence on the planet.

The Ecological Dimension can be complemented by the Economic, Worldview and Social Dimensions to provide a holistic understanding of sustainability and the processes leading to a transformed society. The complete programme finishes with a Design Studio in which the student will use their newly acquired skills and knowledge in real life situation.
