EDE Bali, Indonesia

Programme Description

Based on the Tropical Island of Bali, the most popular holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago, this EDE course, organised by ‘Mother Jungle’ will bring you closer to nature and provide a safe and tranquil environment for you to enjoy and thrive on. Bali is part of the Coral Triangle, the area with the highest biodiversity of marine species. In this area alone, over 500 reef-building coral species can be found. 

Located just 5 minutes walk from Green School within the bamboo eco-village, the Green School Lodge is the perfect location for the EDE-Course to learn about sustainable living and what impact this makes on our planet. During the course, you will be able to fall asleep to the natural sounds of the jungle in a room made from 100% bamboo, have a swim in the natural spring pool by the Ayung River on your doorstep, and walk around the permaculture gardens to learn about the different herbs, plants, vegetables and fruits that we grow and consume sustainably. The Jungle is a perfect place to study, work, live, and play with an awareness of the impact of our thinking and decisions, and this makes it an ideal place for participants to connect with themselves and with nature and build community with diverse participants from all over the world. The EDE Course Bali is a chance to learn for anyone with an interest in sustainability, cultural immersion, entrepreneurial skills, and local community impact close to nature in the area of the ocean and the jungle on a stunning island.

Current & Future EDE Programmes

What is an EDE (Ecovillage Design Education programme)?

Change Agents

Ecovillage Design Education programmes, often referred to as ‘EDEs’, take place in more than 48 countries in settings ranging from tribal and traditional communities to intentional ecovillages, from urban slum to universities and training centres. The duration of these programmes are around 125 hours over a full month, although this may vary slightly depending on where and when they are taken. The EDEs provide students of all ages with the knowledge and practical skills on how to design a society which uses energy and materials with greater efficiency, distributes wealth fairly and strives to eliminate the concept of waste.

How to run an EDE

Run a EDE Programme

Several of our EDE graduates have carried on organising EDE programmes in their local areas, and you are warmly encouraged to do so after completing your course.

The recommended time frame of an EDE is four weeks, however this is not fixed and varies with each individual programme.

The material can be condensed into smaller workshops, spread out over a longer period, or distributed in blocks at different times and locations.
