What does ‘GAIA’ mean?
Drawing on aspects of classical mythology, the ancient Greeks regarded Gaia
as the self-regulating organism, the ultimate Goddess of raw, maternal power. The belief being that our destiny is dependent on what we do for Gaia as a whole, or quite simply, Gaia is life, the very soul of the earth.
Gaia also refers to the environmental dance film (of the same name), made in 2014, by The Gaia Movement founder Erin Fowler and film-maker Nick Graalman.
The Gaia Movement
The Gaia Movement is non-for-profit platform for people around the world to collectively make lasting, positive impact for the planet and climate change.
Through simple acts like putting our feet on the ground and connecting to the earth and natural environment, TGM aims to inspire hope and connection, while planting as may trees as possible.
In a world where many feel helpless, hopeless and over-whelmed, TGM is encouraging and inspiring positive change through creating tangible, practicable and simple actions that anyone, anywhere, can take part in.
The Gaia Movement does this through education resources and schools’ programs, social campaigns and arts projects.
Inspiring and empowering children and young people, the next generation of care-takers of this planet, is central to the work of TGM.
