Schloss Glarisegg Community in Switzerland is hosting its very first Gaia Youth Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) course beginning in the end of January.

A tremendous, record-breaking amount of young people funded by the ‘Youth in Action’ Erasmus Fund signed up for the programme which will be exploring new solutions and effective models to transform society. The students will be provided with tools to incubate communities and set up their own EDE courses once they return to their home towns and villages.

The programme will be applying direct experience as a learning tool by using real-life projects manifesting the four dimension of sustainability. The prospective students have been encouraged to bring their own dream projects along, which will be studied and used in the classroom as a design exercise.
