Ecovillage Design Education 2 - 30 December 2007:
+ Training of Trainers 2-16 january 2008

The Spirit in Education Movement in partnership with Gaia Education and the Global Ecovillage Network presents:


Ecovillage Design Education : 2 - 30 December 2007
Training of Trainers : 2-16 january 2008

Around the world, in urban and rural settings, in the North and South, you can find ecovillages. They are usually based on shared values or spirituality (sometimes called worldview). People come together to build a sustainable community with a common social framework. Ecovillages are designed according to ecological principles to work with nature, not against it, and to promote a low-impact lifestyle. Ecovillage economics are based on self-reliance and reweaving local economic connections

Ecovillages offer one solution to the major challenges of our time - the acceleration of climate change, environmental destruction, social and community fragmentation as well as the challenges of economic globalisation. We can learn much from the sustainable communities which already exist around the world.
