In 2014 the Gaia Movement USA sponsored one of our GAIA colleagues to participate in a Climate Compliance Conference and learn more about Global Warming, Climate Change, Sustainable Agriculture and what does it take to adapt to the rapidly changing world we live in.
The program takes place in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and running for 10 years where new climate activist can start in March, July and November. Students join for six months at the time. A small group of Climate Activists together with a big group of people from St. Vincent aim to spearhead that St. Vincent become Climate Compliant by 2021. The topics covered by this program range from Food and Energy Security to Recycling and Pollution.
The participants learn the basic of organic and sustainable gardening, how to build a rainwater harvesting system, how to install solar panels and water heating. There are also ongoing programs with local schools to educate the next generation who will have to live with the consequences of our actions now.

10,000 lb. of water
0.5 lb. of fertilizers
0.4 oz. of pesticides
and results in emissions of:
6 lb. of greenhouse gases
