GAIA’S WORK IN THE UNITED STATES & CANADA
GAIA’s work in the U.S. and Canada began in the early 2000s, when a wave of incinerator proposals were introduced across the region. Our success in defeating these proposals drove our fight to shut down existing incinerators, particularly those impacting overburdened communities made vulnerable to environmental hazards and lacking opportunity for public participation. Today, GAIA members in the U.S. and Canada continue to work at the intersection of social and environmental issues.
By grounding our work in impacted communities and supporting organizations (such as the Boston Recycling Coalition, the Midwest Environmental Justice Network, and others) that are fighting incinerators, advocating for zero waste, and pushing for environmental and climate justice, our work uplifts communities historically subjected to systemic racism and powers community-driven transformation and self-determination.
