I cannot say enough positive things about Ecosa to convey the worth of the education I received during my time in the program. I built a more holistic understanding of sustainability and how we might achieve it during my time at the institute than in my four years as an environmental studies major at a large university. Ecosa is committed to true, deep green solutions that really get at the root of the issue and change it for the better. Their non-linear approach to education that is heavily experiential engages all five of your senses to understand our current dilemma. With an understanding of the problems at hand Ecosa then teaches you to literally think differently when crafting solutions so to break free of our problematic paradigms of the present. In a intimate setting the program provides the opportunity to rub elbows with the pioneers and rising stars of the sustainable design field such as Sim Van der Ryn, Pliny Fisk, David Orr and Steve Badanes to name only a few. I would highly recommend the Ecosa experience to anyone who wants to make an impactful change for a better future, no matter your field of emphasis.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The non-linear experiential approach to learning that is underutilized in the more traditional academic settings.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Committed to the cause and are involved in the work because it is their passion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

WOW...do so much! They are currently operating on a very limited budget yet still changing lives. With 10 million bucks they could greatly increase their outreach and turn more of their great ideas and designs into tangible realities.

Ecosa was a great learning environment for me. I knew I needed to learn more about sustainable design in-between undergraduate and graduate school, and this was the perfect fit for me. I am certain that the studio project was a big reason on why I was accepted into the numerous prestigious graduate programs that I had applied to. I can't say enough good things about this program, I am a proud alumni.
