Gaia Trust is a Danish charitable entity founded in 1987 with the objective of promoting a global consciousness that experiences the whole planet as a living organism and Mankind as part of that whole.
In practice this has been done primarily through a proactive strategy of defining and carrying out its own initiatives. The two major ones to date have been the Global Eco-village Network and Gaia Technologies A/S. In addition, grants have been given over the years to over 80 projects in 20 countries. Grantgiving activities have now been terminated due to the administrative overload, and the complete focus is on proactive projects.
Gaia Villages, a division of Gaia Trust, acts as International Secretariat for GEN - the Global Eco-village Network, a network of small eco-village projects around the world. Gaia Trust sees the promotion of the eco-village movement as a very important part of the transition to a sustainable and just world society based on a value system that places human values above commercial values, in a radical departure from the dominant paradigm of our times, which is seen as unsustainable. While still embryonic, this movement offers a positive vision for the future and has enormous potential. Eco-villagers are the pioneers of our time, building with few resources and their own lives, a new society, one brick at a time.
