Recognised by UNESCO,  Ecovillage Design Education was specifically designed to enable people and communities coming together to reclaim responsibility for their living situations – at local and regional levels. The EDE is a comprehensive course in the fundamentals of Sustainability Design. It is organised as a mandala that we call the sustainability wheel, encompassing what we perceive to be the four primary interweaving dimensions of human experience – Worldview, Ecological, Social and Economic aspects.

This 5 week course was held at the forest of Pitchandikulam in Auroville India, and attended by 36 participants from all over the world. This documentary explores what an EDE is and feedback from the participants.

Gaia Education was created by a group of educators called "GEESE"- Global Ecovillage Educators for a Sustainable Earth- who have been meeting over a series of workshops in order to formulate their transdisciplinary approach to education for sustainability.

The Global Ecovillage Network is a platform bringing together projects from all over the world who wish to heal the world one way or another.

This short film explores the main elements that bring all these together.

Imagine a world living abundantly, while within its limits. A world that is regenerating rather than depleting the environment, and where cooperation and connection are rewarded. GEN aims to create such a world by spreading the physical and cultural technology of ecovillages. We invite you to get involved with this work!

With the single use plastic ban hitting Tamil Nadu India on the 1st January 2019, we thought about creating awareness about plastic, and understand the material a bit better in order to use it properly. This short documentary also explores the solutions of waste management, including recycling, up cycling and zero waste. Also we learn the language of plastic, that the numbers in the triangles mean.

This film is looking at the intentional community Auroville in Tamil Nadu as an example of how they deal with the waste management and also the local villages surrounding it, giving suggestions and opinions by experts and locals of how they think we can do our part to fix the problem.

Over the year Auroville bamboo center has aimed at teaching participants how to become experts in working with bamboo. Geodesic dome is a hemi- spherical structure made from hole and split bamboo. The shape helps distribute the structural stress throughout the structure. it is a perfect example of low cost construction.
Auroville bamboo center and the Joy of Impermanence community joined together to create this workshop in India October 2018. This short film documents the construction over the 6 days with voices in the background of some of the participants and their feedback of the course.

For 27 years, the Auroville Earth Institute has educated and empowered people to build their own dwellings using earthen techniques.
This presentation  by Lara K.Davis Co-Founder of Earth Institute, explains the many different methods of earth construction around the world.
The Auroville Earth Institute (AVEI), previously known as the Auroville Building Centre/Earth Unit, was founded by HUDCO, Government of India, in 1989. The former building centre progressively evolved and took the name of the Auroville Earth Institute in 2004.
AVEI is a non-profit organisation registered under the Foundation of Auroville, which is an organisation of the Government of India.
In the intervening years, the Auroville Earth Institute has become one of the world’s top centres for excellence in earthen architecture, working in 36 countries to promote and transfer knowledge in earth architecture. The work of the Earth Institute has attempted to revive traditional skills and to link ancestral and vernacular traditions of raw earth construction with the modern technology of stabilised earth.
For millennia men proved that they could live in a sustainable way. They lived in harmony with nature. They made use of it, yet respected it. People used earth as a raw material with sensitivity. The "modern" fashion of the 20th century created a break with the millennia old developments. Our Mother Earth has been spoilt and abused. The 21st century should find again the harmonious link between man, nature and spirit.
