The Ecovillage Design Curriculum is an evolving, comprehensive, and flexible resource for educators who want to help create a more sustainable future. The curriculum was first developed by an international group of educators called Global Ecovillage Educators for a Sustainable Earth (GEESE) who met at the Findhorn Foundation, Scotland in June of 2004 and again at Galgafarm, Hungary in June of 2005.

The curriculum is organized into four Dimensions, each with five Modules. You can learn more about each module by following the links below and discover and share additional Resources. It is also possible to use this curriculum to create a Certified Course in your own region. Please Contact Us with your questions and suggestions.
