Gaia Foundation

The Gaia Foundation’s mission is to work in partnership with those who are committed to ecological governance through restoring cultural and biological diversity, which we believe is the basis for building ecological and community resilience. When we understand the dynamics of the eco-system in which we live, we are more likely to respect the laws of the Earth in a mutually enhancing way.

We work with local and indigenous communities who take for granted that ‘If we destroy the Earth we destroy ourselves.’ We see that the multiple crises which we are facing now – from climate change and global economic collapse to community breakdown and species extinction – are all interconnected and require, therefore, a unified response at a deeper level of thinking. As Einstein says, ‘With the splitting of the atom everything has changed save our mode of thinking and thus we drift towards unparalelled disaster.’
