Gaia will be the focal point of a special event to highlight and address some of the very real issues affecting our world. We all have a duty and responsibility to safeguard our planet and acknowledge the impact of climate change. We hope that Heaven & Earth - The World in Our Hands will raise awareness, educate and inspire us all to protect our world. This event will feature exhibits with a focus on climate change plus talks on environmental issues.
