Over the weekend Gaia Education moved from the Climate Generations Area in Le Bourget to the Global Village of Alternatives in Montreuil, aimed to showcase a multitude of civil society-led approaches addressing the climate, energy and ecological crisis we face.

Orchestrated by 500 volunteers and spread over streets and squares, the Global Village gathered 200 organisations and attracted over 28,000 citizens eager to learn and be inspired by the many solutions presented.

Some of the themes included small-scale, local and sustainable farming, short supply chains, shared gardens, co-housing and shared housing, relocation of economic activities, fair trade, community-led renewable energy schemes, participatory urban planning, sustainable transportation, waste reduction, transition towns and education.

Maurice Hennequin, Head of Strategy and Marketing at Gaia took part in the Round Table discussion on Saturday afternoon on “From local to global, pro-climate alternative lifestyles and struggles: how to build a climate justice movement?”
