Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society

Dear Subscribers:

How can we successfully manage the transition towards sustainable energy?

How can we use the natural resources of our planet in a sustainable manner?

Is the Green Economy living up to its promises?

No single discipline can provide the answers to these and similar questions. This is why, for 25 years now, GAIA has been building networks between practitioners and scientists with a wide variety of disciplinary specialties, all with the goal of jointly finding the best solutions for the environment and society.

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, GAIA invites you to browse through the results of this fruitful endeavor by offering free online access to all articles > from December 6, 2017 to January 15, 2018.

On this auspicious anniversary, we also looked into which topics GAIA readers had found most intriguing in 2017. The three most popular articles dealt with the Green Economy, ecosystem services and the Anthropocene.
