Ecological Design Thinking at Schumacher College

18 June 2014

In January 2015 Schumacher College starts a new postgraduate programme in Ecological Design Thinking.

Two years in the planning, this programme will lead the way we think about our world and how to live within it.

To celebrate the launch, David Orr will be leading a two-week short course this summer, looking at how we design and use the land and resources here on the Dartington Estate as a case study for the wider world.

Live discussion: Why is everyone taking the government to court?

There's a pandemic on – so why are openDemocracy, Foxglove and others challenging the British government's health contracts in court? Join us for the inside story on how we're going to extraordinary lengths to force the government to reveal what they're doing with public money and citizens' health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.

Cori Crider Lawyer Investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that seeks to make the use of technology fair for everyone
