Gaia Project video

Have a look at this video if you are interested in knowing more about the challenges and the reasons for providing sustainable, life-changing energy solutions to refugee camps.

“Cooking like never before, refugees lives are transformed thanks by a simple stove. This video features “Wavin’ Flag” by hip-hop star K’naan and is directed by filmmaker Jake Boritt. This film premiered at the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP15).

Project Gaia is bringing an energy revolution to the developing world. Every day thousands of people become ill or die from inhaling the polluting smoke of indoor cooking fires. Project Gaia is part of a global initiative to develop and promote clean-cooking alcohol stoves and fuels for people living in poverty. Thanks to K’naan, Sol Guy and David Boxenbaum at A&M/Octone Records and Bole to Harlem. “
