The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) Program covers 20 subject areas in four dimensions: Social, Ecological, Economic, and Worldview The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) Program was born out of the experiences of long-existing communities and cutting-edge educators in order to teach how to create a new way of living that brings together the four key dimensions of Sustainability - Worldview, Ecological, Social, and Economic aspects.

Learn principles of ecovillage design to create regenerative change in rural and semi-urban spaces. This EDE in particular has a semi-urban focus because it partners with exsisting local organizations, so you work within the constraints of exsisting structures/initiatives. While the basis of the EDE addresses foundatinos of setting up an eco-village or intentional community in a rural area, there are some additional modules which provide attention to semi-urban spaces and exsisting organizations. Eco-villages provide a great blueprint for how we can live more sustainably. Working within exsisting structures and framework s allows participants to think in solutinos to current systemic factors which may provide barriers to long-term sustainability.
