The world is at a tipping point. After millions of years the pristine, living tapestry of life on planet Earth is under assault. Massive human population is demanding more energy and resources but nature’s systems are limited. We quickly approach those limits with a future of unknown challenges. Yet the power of human creativity can be harnessed to move culture in a new direction. Ecosa is working to address the challenges of our time head-on using the power of creativity and design.
How is Ecosa different?
Mainstream institutions now teach “sustainability” but often in a traditional, fragmented way. Ecosa presents the power of a systems approach, design thinking, adaptive complexity and cross skill collaboration. These are all cornerstones of the Ecosa curriculum. This is why, if you are passionate about creating a better future, Ecosa has the program for you.
What is the Ecosa experience?
Ecosa Institute provides not just a design or sustainability program but a transformative experience that provides unique, relevant insights into the world we live in. The curriculum at Ecosa demonstrates how to intervene in the world to create better outcomes. We attract students with open minds, a passion for making a difference, a willingness to work for change and the discipline to be self directed. Is this you? We welcome you to pioneer a new way of learning. Join us in imagining and creating a new world of possibility.
