EDE at Damanhur – aug 2019

Posted by on May 2, 2019 in EDE, Educatie, Internationaal, Nieuws | 0 comments

Dear friends, Also this year we will hold the EDE at Damanhur from August 3 – 31. This is already our ninth year and every EDE has been really special and very specific. (EDE flyer) I think all EDE’s are really great, so why should you choose to do it at Damanhur? Firstly because it is supported by 44 years of diverse community experience, as Damanhur has changed much over the years and is also now continuing it’s transformation process; secondly because during the EDE a community is built, in deed, many of the people who did the EDEs here are still in contact and some do projects together. The EDE is an incredible experience to learn tools both for yourself and for your projects, whether you want to build a community or use them in your personal or professional life. Gaia Education is now an active member of UNESCO’s Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development. The UNESCO GAP on ESD is a global effort to generate and scale up action in all levels and areas of education and learning to accelerate progress towards sustainable development. Damanhur is a Key Partner in the implementation of the Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development. Every year is different, because different people have a different alchemy, surely they are always very inspiring, sometimes life changing, and hopefully this year it will be even more inspiring than the last ones. Please help me spread the news and send the flyer below to your friends and to everybody who might be interested. Warmest regards,...
