Visit to GAIA

Snowbird Symposium Center for Global Justice

GAIA

Description:

The GAIA organization was founded by the Caldera family. The four member family lives outside of San Miguel on the way to Jalpa, in a community called Sosnabar. GAIA’s mission is to bring sustainable and renewable energy technologies to rural Mexico that will be appropriate and usable for rural people. They have built three houses as part of their “eco-village” that use techniques such as solar stoves, dry toilets, wind power, solar water heaters, and many more. Their goal is to host groups long-term and provide workshops and training sessions to those visitors.
