PRESCOTT, AZ – August 3, 2017 – Ecosa Institute has selected 14 talented applicants to participate in its three-month immersion program into the theory and practice of Ecological Design. Out of 32 applications received by June 16th, 14 were rigorously selected based on their background and desire to create positive environmental change. Ecosa’s Ecological Design Certificate Program (EDCP) is being offered free for a limited time only; however, the waiting list is growing daily. Ecosa believes that such critical knowledge should be free to committed students. “We want to reach students whose commitment to the environment is unwavering, have the ability to think critically, and perform in-depth research. The goal was to find students, regardless of income, who are most likely to create positive change in the world,” said Tony Brown, founder of Ecosa Institute.

In 2017, in response to the Trump administration’s abandonment of the COP21 Paris Agreement, Ecosa has launched a revolutionary program to provide tuition-free education to students at its campus in Prescott, AZ. “The information gained from our program is imperative and the issues we are facing are time sensitive,” writes Tony Brown.
The Fall EDCP begins August 28. Applications for the Spring 2018 program are now being accepted and the organization anticipates another flood of interested students.
