Registration opens for ‘Design for Sustainability’ course

(4 July 2017) – The next Gaia Education ‘Design for Sustainability’ programme, which starts in October and offers participants a whole-systems design understanding of sustainable communities, is open for registration.

The GEDS curriculum expands on the academic orthodoxy that sees sustainability as a three legged stool by adding the critical fourth dimension of ‘worldview and value system’. This approach has since been more widely adopted and is now often called the cultural dimension by UN agencies and national governments.

The course provides students with the knowledge and confidence to take an active role in designing for sustainability, both professionally and personally, for small and large scale community projects.
