Gaia Education’s Design for Sustainability | Online Programme

Gaia Education’s online programme, Design for Sustainability, provides students with whole systems design skills, analytical abilities and practical tools to support the redesign of the human presence on Earth, one local community and bioregion at a time.

The e-learning programme consists of four dimensions: Social Design, Ecological Design, Economic Design and Worldview., each contained in an eight-week period.  You will learn skills and effective methods to collaborate with others in regenerative design for societal transformation and the creation of thriving communities within vibrant regional economies. The course will explore case studies and best process examples that demonstrate how regenerative cultures use energy and materials with greater efficiency, distribute wealth more fairly and strive to eliminate the concept of waste, in order to regenerate the material, energy and social resources they depend upon as much as possible at the local and regional scale.

Once you have successfully completed the four dimensions you can sign up for the Design Studio – an exciting opportunity to work within a global design team composed of fellow students from different countries and focused on real world design projects that will give you the perfect opportunity to revise and apply what you have learned in the course. Have a look at the kind of design projects created in previous years here.
