The Global EcoVillage Project was an on-line learning option for Upland Hills School students who are currently learning at home !
We had 4 ZOOM Sessions in May, 2020 with the GOAL: to design a Community that is Ecological and Fun ! So…. together a core team of several students ~ Taj, Fiona, Alisha, Felix ~ explored, sketched and shared their visions. Teachers Deanne Bednar & Michael Mallon helped support that process, while really enjoying the process themselves ! Photo Album.
The Global Ecovillage Project is available for individuals and teachers to use, modifying it to meet your needs. The Global EcoVillage Project was originally developed and taught (1981 – 1996) by Deanne in her Sustainable Futures elective class at the 7th grade level at OLMS in West Bloomfield. We also did an earthen “Cob” model at Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center and at the MI Earth Day Festivals & the Detroit Bioneers Conference ! At the Strawbale Studio some of these ideas are being built “for real” ! 3 min video
