These are the last days for people from all over Europe except for Germany to apply for Grundtvig funding for the international EDE Course (Ecovillage Design Education) to take place in August/September 2010 in the Ecovillage of Sieben Linden.
We will have 30 participants, 10 of whom will come from southern countries, mainly Africa.
The application has become slightly easier and we are here to support you/ your friends in going for it. We have loads of applicants from Turkey and Holland so far and hardly any from other countries.
Please let others know and ask them to get in touch with me as quickly as possible : firstname.lastname@example.org
Warm regards and a happy new year, Kosha
