Our Approach

At The Gaia Project, we use a unique approach to empower youth to take action. We incorporate inquiry-based education, curriculum links, and local action in each of our projects.

How it's Accomplished

Strategic Partnerships: We work with a range of partners dedicated to creating rich, real-world learning opportunities for students and teachers

Teachers Supports: We help teachers through professional learning activities, resources and in classroom support to bring climate change into their pedagogy.

Enhance Student Learning: We give students of all ages hands-on experiences to explore issues around energy, waste, water, transportation and general sustainability.

Thinking Globally, Acting Locally: We give students the resources they need to take local action on the global issue of climate change

  • Opportunities with The Gaia Project have helped to bring about real changes, not only in the students' understanding and views of the world around them and their capacity to help, but also in the way the school is actually run as we have made concrete changes in some of our energy consumption strategies and practices.
