In Greek mythology, GAIA is the personification of the Earth. Gaia is one of the Greek primordial deities. She is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess.

Crisis or Challenge?
Humankind can be seen as either the climax of evolutions course, or its greatest error. No other creature is a fraction so precocious. No other can think about the world, plan to make it better, and dream of the best possible. Yet no other reveals such capacity for perverse behavior - for gross misuse of its habitat and for reckless proliferation of numbers, without thought for the consequences.
In certain senses, humanity is becoming a super-malignancy on the face of the planet, spreading with insidious effect and formenting ultimate crisis in covert fashion. A cancer cell is unusually vital, since it replicates itself with remarkable vigor; it is also exceptionally stupid, since it ends by killing the host upon which it depends for its survival. But unlike the cancer cell, we are coming to realize the nature of what we are doing. Can we learn fast enough, act soon enough? 
Our GAIA Fan Club project at Habitat for Health recognizes GAIA as a partner in, and for, life as we know it. The GAIA Fan Club concept is to close gaps between human EGO systems and the planet's ECO systems. Here's why.
Population growth increases demand for goods and services. Increase in demand is a major driving force behind economic development. The result increases pressure on natural systems and resources. While the economy continues to expand, the ecosystem on which it depends does not.
Eco-eco relations are the natural indicators used to identify damage or sustain recovery. For example:
- forests are shrinking,
- water tables are falling,
- soils are eroding,
- wetlands are disappearing,
- fisheries are collapsing,
- range lands are deteriorating,
- rivers are running dry,
- temperatures are rising,
- coral reefs are dying,
- plant and animal species are disappearing, and
- waste that does not break down is accumulating.
On the up side, there many ways to start meaningful projects. For example, Greta Thunberg promotes strikes to stimulate action that abates climate change. The GAIA Fan Club promotes individual and group projects. Both initiatives seek similar outcomes. The differences are in scale, methods and targets.
The most serious problem right now, today, is opposition between competing human ideologies. Simply put, those who care about planet stewardship and those who don't.
The power of the individual to shape the course of history may be one of the most underdeveloped of all natural resources. It is only by the agreement of individuals that the complex relations between government, business, and people have produced the benefits of a developed, multicultural society. Credit for achievements must also include responsibility for failures like environmental problems. Although discussions and programs to clean up or avoid environmental decline are underway, the extent of individual power is yet to be applied. By taking a closer look at what is going on and being done, clues how individual power can be used to help may be revealed. 
Unleash your power as an individual. Become one of the most developed of all natural resources to shape the course of history. Join our GAIA Fan Club to design and steward your own GAIA project - with a little help from our friends.
