"The Gaia Network is a group that is interested in exploring the insights of Gaia Theory for wider society. By comparing how Gaia has expanded scientific horizons, we are interested in what the analogous expansion in perspective means for wider society. Obviously this is very much work in progress and we don’t pretend that we will so much find the answer, as to generate new ideas and help inspire our own work in our various spheres.

"We first assembled in 2001 with Professor Mary Midgley as our Chair, and rather than impose a pre-conceived idea of how we would function, the structure of our activities was allowed to ‘emerge’...A book was published in 2007 based on the meetings called Earthy Realism. We are not expansionist but welcome anyone who is interested in attending who has an interest and understanding of earth systems perspectives and approaches." [1]
