I participated in the Ecosa semester intensive as part of my undergraduate degree. Practical tools for the design of human dwelling were explored alongside philosophies of sustainability. The experience left me with a complex understanding of the forces changing our planet today, a desire to work for conditions where life flourishes (human and otherwise), and many methods for doing so. The faculty are gifted designers, as architects and as educators. The combination of readings, discussions, design projects, field trips, and the excellent sequence of lectures is well-balanced, lively, fascinating, and informative. Only after the semester had ended was I able to look back and realize how well crafted the curriculum is. The intelligence and good hearts that make Ecosa are more valuable than I can say.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
execute more large scale green projects in its hometown of Prescott, AZ, starting with facilities worthy of the program.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
