In a Nutshell
GAEA Project’s Earth Smart Village is all about making people feel like part of our community. It’s not just eco-tourism, leadership training, and environmental education.
We’re building the only future for humanity that will last.
A sustainable future is ,well, sustainable. This is our vision, as we scale up our plan with community investment and international roll outs of our duplicable programs. Using the collective passion and energy that folks don’t even know they are capable of.
That’s sustainability. That’s Earth Smart Village.
Once fully operational, EARTH SMART VILLAGE will employ ten permanent employees, fifteen to thirty interns, resident and visiting environmental educators, and supplemental well-trained professionals available to facilitate programs and daily operations. In addition, we will invite community members to volunteer and participate in a variety of exciting projects.
