We will be hosting another international EDE-Course in Sieben Linden in August-September 2010 (including a 72-hours Permaculture Certificate Course and an Introduction to Dragon Dreaming).
As was the case last year, it is possible to apply for Grundtvig funding for the largest part of course fees, travel expenses and food and lodging if you come from (non-german) EU-member states plus Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Turkey. Please note : the application deadline for funding through Grundtvig is JANUARY 15th, 2010 !
If you want to apply for funding, please let us know now by sending an email both to myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ben (email@example.com) including your address and telephone number. We will send you more details, including a beautiful report on last years EDE and will support you in the period from January 1 - January 15 in the process of actually writing and sending in your application.
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
