As a leading provider of Education for Sustainable Development, we empower our students to see the interconnectedness of life - teaching the knowledge & skills needed to design regenerative communities.

We offer online courses, face-to-face courses, webinars, Masterclasses, and international project-based learning. 

Gaia Education is a international NGO that provides participants with the knowledge and skills to design a thriving society. We teach our students how to use energy and resources with greater efficiency, distribute wealth equitably, and make quality of life the focus of future thinking.

We believe that education is the biggest tool in the fight for a more regenerative future and reversing the climate crisis. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds and walks of life.

Ecovillage Design Education

Ecovillage Design Education programmes, often referred to as ‘EDEs’, provide participants of all ages with the knowledge and practical skills to design a society which uses energy and materials with greater efficiency, distributes wealth fairly and strives to eliminate the concept of waste.

Our immersive Face-to-Face programmes are known to have transformed lives. Previous participants have become agents of positive culture change in their communities and regional economies, they’ve co-created social enterprises and cooperatives, started community projects and became trainers for sustainability themselves – to name only a few paths you can take afterwards. The course will equip you with skills and knowledge you will be able to put into action in any field or sector you are involved with.

Participants become change agents and sustainability designers, 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, more meaningful and healthier lives.

Our programmes have been taking place in 55 countries since 2005. We are very grateful for all our partners and organisers, associates and friends around the world, who have helped us to train more than 25,000 people over the past years.

Join the movement empowering you to take steps towards designing a regenerative community! 

Our group of leading global sustainability educators created Gaia Education back in 2005. Because, like you, they wanted to see us improve our relationship with nature and our planet. 

Fast forward to today, and the message is just as vital if not more crucial! If we cannot make these necessary shifts, the outlook for our planets biodiversity and its ecosystems looks bleak
