Enroll for one semester and discover a new world
Learn to use nature as a model, develop and deepen your environmental awareness, and explore the exciting challenge of designing a healthy, just and sustainable world. Join us for our in-depth and experiential Ecological Design Certificate program and discover what it means to design with nature.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO DESIGN FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD
One of the unique aspects of the Ecosa Institute Certificate in Ecological Design is that students work on a diverse team and engage with actual clients, real sites and real budgets. Students work on a number of projects each semester, both large and small, that incorporate ecological design principles and also meet client needs.
“The only way to make significant change is through a design revolution”
LEARN FROM the ecology of the american southwest
We offer TWO great ways to explore the beautiful landscape of the southwest while learning about sustainability and ecological design. Our Sustainable Southwest Road Trip is a condensed 10 Day trip that includes all the stops from the field trips in our 16 week Certificate in Ecological Design. These trips are integrated into the learning experience to provide a basis for discussion and to place sustainable design into a broader context.

A few years ago we consulted with homeowner Marie Jones of Flagstaff, AZ to design a house made from shipping containers. We’ve published many of the lessons along with the story of this project in a free e-book, Getting Started With Container House Designs. This e-book offers a little preview into some of the design challenges you might encounter as an Ecosa student. Enjoy!
