Hi there and a big welcome to Gaia in Cyberspace. We have many pages about our projects, and lots of downloads for those interested in our reports, studies and surveys but here's a brief introduction to Project Gaia.
Project Gaia is based upon integrated coastal zone management in the Maltese islands. We are a non profit, non government organisation set up in June 1994 to specialise in this field of environment management. Gaia is part of the Global Ecovillage Network, member of the Worldwatch Institute, and part of the Gaia Movement world wide.
Since we are a hands on project implementation group we do not have resources for campaigns. However we do support other local campaigns, especially those that involve issues that may have an impact on our coastal zone and disseminate information provided by the Worldwatch Institute.
We are currently managing two areas of ecological importance that fall within the proposed sites for the European Natura 2000 Network; under agreement with the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) and the Ministry for Rural Affairs and the Environment (MRAE)
Each arm of this project has been given a Greek Mythological name which symbolises its aim. The most active arms are:
