Addressing the challenge of climate change going forward requires much more than Canadians simply knowing more information about the problem. Canadians must begin to grapple with where we go from here; recognizing the technical, social and political challenges involved in climate change reduction strategies; determining appropriate greenhouse gas reduction targets; and, finally, exploring solutions that are capable of providing measurable greenhouse gas reductions today and the innovative solutions of tomorrow. Achieving this will require the development of new skill-sets and awareness among Canadians.

As our future leaders, today’s students will soon face unprecedented problem-solving challenges. Accepting that most students now have an appreciation of the scope of the problems associated with climate change, The Gaia Project is solution-focused. Rather than raising awareness among students where awareness already exists, we seek to inspire and train young Canadians to develop their knowledge and skills to tackle this global problem.
