Our values

We want to keep it real. We want to do the work.

And in order to keep it real and embody the change we want to see in the world, we have to begin by holding ourselves accountable.

We must keep asking ourselves: what structures can we challenge within our internal ecosystem to show up as better agents of change?

The backbone of the Gaia Gives vision is built entirely on transparency, integrity, and trust.

1. We lead through love instead of fear

With the overwhelming amount of doom and gloom in the media, it is very human for feelings of loss or despair to arise. We don’t allow this to cripple us.

We don’t use fear tactics, skepticism or manipulation to push forth an agenda. Instead, we alchemize those feelings into urgency, motivation and action to plant seeds of change and focus on the improvement we can bring as a collective.

We act from a place of love for the planet and our people, supporting some of the most innovative regenerative projects out there.

2. Ego is not our amigo

We are not here to “save”, we are just here to serve as a catalyst of empowerment and systemic change.

We transcend the tone-deaf idea of giving “voice to the voiceless”. There is no such thing. Everyone has a story and should have a seat at the table, but unfortunately, systematic oppression has disempowered and disenfranchised some of the most powerful wisdom out there and marginalized diverse communities.

We serve as a platform to amplify voices and remember together.

3. Growth & transparency over perfection

Walking the talk goes beyond celebrating wins and being clear with our goals, milestones and vision. It means also being radically honest and humble, even when things don’t go exactly how we want them to.

We are committed to growth and improvement.

Let's normalize being open about setbacks and challenges, they are vessels for improvement…it’s about how we get back up and overcome them.
