'In Gaia we are just another species
neither the owners nor the stewards
of this planet.
Our future depends much more upon a
right relationship with Gaia
than with the
never-ending drama of human interest'
James Lovelock : The Ages of Gaia
The world view provided by Gaia science shows us how the planet really works and where we as a species fit in. The insights it gives us are fundamental in assessing the impact of human activity on the natural world, and particularly relevant for an understanding of the issues of sustainability and climate change.
Gaia's Company explores the exciting implications of the Gaia world view in a practical and entertaining way, through interactive performances, events
and workshops, and encourages individuals, groups and organisations to understand how they might move towards a 'right relationship with Gaia'.
‘Bacteria invented all of life’s essential miniaturised chemical systems: fermentation, photosynthesis,
oxygen breathing, and the
removal of nitrogen gas from the air – achievements that so far humanity has not approached.’
