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.

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
