  • Les jeunes d’aujourd’hui sont les dirigeants, les innovateurs, les scientifiques, les entrepreneurs et les décideurs de demain. Le Projet Gaia est un organisme unique qui aide les élèves à comprendre cette menace existentielle et à y réagir, aujourd’hui comme à l’avenir.

  • Les jeunes ont un rôle à jouer dans la protection de notre climat, aujourd’hui et demain, et c’est pourquoi nous sommes heureux d'appuyer le Projet Gaia dans sa mission d'outiller les jeunes.

  • Les programmes du Projet Gaia ont permis d'apporter de réels impacts, non seulement dans la compréhension et la vision qu’ont les élèves du monde qui les entoure et dans leur capacité à aider, mais aussi dans la manière dont l’école est gérée, car nous avons apporté des changements concrets à certaines de nos stratégies et pratiques de consommation d’électricité.
