The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) program is meant for those wishing to learn about sustainability principles, and especially for those who might like to plan a an ecovillage in their local community.
The main objective of this program is to develop non-formal education courses with a philosophy of change and evidence-based spiritual, moral and cultural transformation of mindfulness and consciousness, which will work as an intervention point for systemic change in sustainable agricultural systems and community development.
