Santa Barbara Permaculture Network Presents
Gaia University-World Changers-Apply Here!
with Liora Adler and Andy Langford

Monday Oct 8 , 2012
Anyi Gallery Santa Barbara
$5 admission

Join Liora Adler & Andrew Langford on Monday, Oct 8, 7-9:30pm, with a talk about Gaia University and action based learning.

Founded in 2004 Gaia University is a revolutionary university without walls, a university across borders that focuses on ecological regeneration and social justice while offering students Bachelors and Masters degrees.

Action learning is central to Gaia University methodology with an approach that emphasizes a balanced flow of action and theory – learning by doing merged with learning by thinking.

Gaia University offers a unique and flexible model based on self-directed, project-based pathways. With a minimum of required courses, students devote the major part of their energy towards the design, implementation and documentation of real-world projects, with a support web of advisers and mentors who assist in the practical development of projects and encourage students to develop the capacity to think critically about their work and inner processes.

Liora Adler & Andrew Langford are co-founders and co-presidents of Gaia University

Liora has over thirty years experience with ecovillages and the establishment of global networks. In 1982 Liora co-founded Huehuecoyotl Ecovillage in highlands of central Mexico. Liora was lead partner of the spectacular Caravan Arcoiris de la Paz theatre that toured South America from 1996- 2009 carrying messages of peace and permaculture. Liora has served on the Board of the Global Ecovillage Network, as a UN representative, and is a Board Member of The Global Village Institute. She holds an Master of Education with a major in counseling psychology.

Andrew holds a Masters degree in Organization Analysis and Development and a postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies but believes his most potent education takes place outside of conventional institutions. Andrew initiated permaculture teaching in the UK starting in 1985 and, together with others in the Permaculture Association of Britain, helped train more than 3,000 permaculture designers. He is a principal architect of the Permaculture Diploma WorkNet from the UK.

The evening talk takes place on Monday Oct 8, 7pm-9:30pm, Ayni Galley, 216 State St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Admission $5, no reservations required. More info: (805)962-2571,

Gaia University charts a pathway to accreditation though IMCA (International Management Centers Association) and Revans University–the only action-learning university in the world.

Those are the largest trousers in the world! Especially when next to this ad:
