Our ability to stay creative, flexible, collaborative and adaptive in the face of changing environments is key to address the challenges we collectively face. Join our online course and become an ecological designer to ensure that life-supporting natural functions are not only preserved but regenerated whenever possible.
Ecologic Design refers to sustainability from a whole systems design perspective
Ecologic design is a multifaceted field embracing green architecture, sustainable agriculture, ecological engineering, ecological restoration and regenerative development which can sustain the pattern of ecological interdependencies and nurture the conditions for all living systems to thrive.
Learn to create elegant solutions carefully adapted to the biocultural uniqueness of place
This course will provide a broad perspective of the historical roots of ecological design thinking and explore how regenerative design, permaculture, ecological economics and engineering, industrial ecology and cradle-to-cradle, environmental restoration could support the fundamental redesign of humanity’s impact on Earth.
Acquire the fundamental skills to become an ecological designer and create self-regenerating sustainable settlements
Working with natural patterns, embracing all living systems, we would explore how can we co-create decentralised and re-regionalised ecological settlements and cities that are adapted to the unique conditions of their bioregions in ways that help us to move beyond adaptation and mitigation towards regenerative development, to stay below 1.5 degrees of warming.
