Gaia is the Geography and Environmental Studies Student Association at the University of Ottawa. We are here to serve and represent the student bodies of these programs and to help better your university experience.
“Gaia“ (pronounced guy-a), according to Greek Mythology, is the goddess of the Earth. James Lovelock used the term in the 1970s to describe the earth as a living, self-regulating organism.
