Gaia University

"Over the years there have been several initiatives to form a university focused on the needs of Gaia, the living planet. Gaia is the name of the ancient Greek goddess of the Earth and was, more recently, re-adopted by James Lovelock in the 1970's to promote a whole systems approach to the newly recognized field of ecology.

In the late 1980's, Radical Routes in Birmingham, England to support their initiative to launch a Gaia University approached Andy Langford, as the president of the Permaculture Association of Britain. The Birmingham Gaia University initiative ran until quite recently, although it never fulfilled it's potential being unable to find accreditation suited to its particular style." [1]
