Learn about the 4 dimensional framework in the Foundation for Intentional community webinar
The purpose of Foundation for Intentional Community (FIC) is bring communities around the world together into a hub to share knowledge, resources and connect with each other to build a movement.
The Foundation for Intentional Community (FIC) has over 35 years of partnership with hundreds of intentional communities around the world. At a time when people are desperate for more social connection and answers to complex problems, intentional communities offer hope in an increasingly broken world.
Through community we transform…
Loneliness into belonging and meaning
Economic inequality into cooperative economy
Climate crisis into sustainable ecological design
One of the leading frameworks that are used in all Gaia Education courses is the 4 dimensional tool which looks at sustainability holistically through the lens of social issues, ecological factors, the impact of personal and collective worldview and economic component and how they are all interlinked.
You now have the opportunity to learn about the 4-D framework with Giovanni Ciarlo in a webinar with FIC tomorrow on the 29th July at 2pm ET time , who has a long background in starting up an ecovillage in Mexico. He will share how he uses the 4 dimensional framework to overcome conflicts and issues as well as how it can help anyone in any setting who is wanting to start a community or bring a group together. He will also guide you how you can facilitate conversations in your community about holistic sustainability, embracing a whole systems approach.
During this session you will learn:
- What is the four dimensional framework
- How the four aspects – – social. ecological, economic and worldview – are interlinked
- Examples of how the framework can be used in practise, and to facilitate conversations in your community
- How a whole systems approach can be applied to any setting: urban, rural, suburban, ecovillage etc.
This also acts as an introduction into the Gaia Education Design for Sustainability course.
