Gaia Education’s Project Based Learning is a dynamic learning approach in which stakeholders acquire appropriate skills and analytical tools while actively exploring real-life solutions to the challenges of designing sustainable settlements.
We work with traditional and indigenous communities in the Global South to improve the way they manage their environments and villages, while addressing climate change vulnerabilities. Engaged communities benefit with more stable and fertile soil, secure supply of food and clean water and enhanced livelihoods.
Developing local food economies is a key element in Gaia Education and partners’ Project Based Learning programmes. Our projects promote integrated approaches to land management for healthier soils, nutritional yields and enhanced climate resilience. Furthermore we support communities to establish social enterprises and local small businesses, aiming to preserve their unique culture, foods and ecologies and to foster greater economic vitality and diversification.
Our collaborative projects are a direct and positive contribution to the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
