The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE)

The EDE curriculum covers four dimensions of sustainability: Worldview, Social, Ecological and Economical. Each dimension or section has been subdivided into 5 modules as shown in the sustainability circle below. It was first developed and offered in several ecovillages (among them Findhorn and Crystal Waters) and has been adjusted and refined during the years since 1998. It is the result of the work of about twenty experienced ecovillage educators (“The Founding Geese”).

The EDE curriculum offers a wide range of practical application and innovative materials, ideas and tools that have been developed and tested in ecovillages, communities and urban transition settings worldwide. Gaia Education is offering this as a free download for personal use (i.e. not for resale for a profit).  EDE copyright @ Gaia Education.
