Education

Cosanti Foundation conducts educational programs for students of all ages to help increase understanding of ecological sustainability, responsible building practices, environmental accountability, and other principles consistent with creating urban habitat while protecting natural surroundings. We focus upon demonstrating how to balance experientially rich lifestyles with Earth’s carrying capacity, especially as population densities increase. Education methods include hands-on workshops onsite, in schools, and in other community venues. Workshops range from single day to multi-week programs, drawing participants from local K-12 schools, universities around the world, and individuals interested in experiential learning rooted in the concept of arcology. We have begun to enhance educational experiences through the use of 3D visualization technology and computer modeling.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Cosanti Foundation’s experimental environmental program expands from a more structured teaching approach to offer casual and spontaneous learning opportunities. Visitors may tour either of Cosanti Foundation’s physical sites to see the concepts of arcology reflected in facilities that are actively used for both residential and commercial purposes. Overnight accommodations are available for those who want to immerse themselves more completely in the experience of dwelling in a transformational “urban” environment. At Arcosanti, one of the Foundation’s sites, about sixty individuals reside full time. A number of the residents also work full-time on the Arcosanti site. Periodically the Arcosanti community hosts musical, arts, and conference-type events to which the general public is invited.
