GAIA is SCI’s youngest international working group. It focuses on sustainable development and climate change. GAIA aims to improve SCI’s consciousness of sustainable living in relationship to peace and social justice. The main function of the group is to share information, and facilitate cooperation within the SCI network in this thematic field. In addition, GAIA provides support when action at the international level is necessary.
Examples of activities implemented by GAIA in the last three years are:
- Development of communication tools such as a Blog and the ´GaiaZine´ newsletter. These tools are mainly aimed at spreading information within the SCI movement and to connect volunteers who are active in this field.
- The introduction and launch of the “Green Camps” label for short term voluntary projects.
- Participation in climate campaigns
- Participation in the United Nations negotiations on Climate Change
