In the 2019-2020 school year so far, Gaia...

aia Project nurtures New Brunswick students’ natural curiosity and intelligence through inquiry-based projects about energy, waste, water, transportation and sustainability. In K-12 classrooms across the province, we deliver hands-on programs showing students how their behaviours influence energy systems and offering the chance to identify and solve real-world problems. 

Gaia’s student-led approach is meaningful and memorable, instilling in youth a sense of agency and autonomy to take action in their schools, homes and communities. It also fosters the 21st-century skills that help our young people learn and grow as citizens. Our action-based projects inspire them to develop practical responses to the here and now and be part of a sustainable energy future.
