About a film “Gaia Symphony”
『Can you sense the calling from GAIA?』
If our Mother Earth is truly a living organism, then mankind may be her "mind"
- an existence delegated with the responsibility of acting as its "imagination.
" Through this imagination, we have created science, and have drastically altered the landscape of our planet.
The environment we have today is, for better or worse, its product.
If so, then it follows that the future of this planet, including the environmental issues we face, will also be determined
by the imagination of mankind --- how we think and feel.
"Gaia Symphony" is a film series about individuals with very insightful messages for the future of the Earth
in the 21st century. Each one of them is an ordinary person who is making an extraordinary contribution
to help create a beautiful future for the planet.
The images we have of the Earth today will shape its future tomorrow.
I sincerely hope "Gaia Symphony" can give the extra energy all of us need in our hearts and minds
in this process of creation.
Gaia is the name of the Goddess of the Earth in Greek mythology.
British scientist Dr. James Lovelock proposed a theory that the Earth itself is a giant living organism.
All living creatures actively create the environment they need to survive in, maintaining vironmental
factors like temperature, humidity and atmosphere. He calls this theory Gaia.
It is from this theory that the title Gaia Symphony originates.
Since its first release in 1992, without the help of any large distribution companies,
Gaia Symphony continues to be screened voluntarily across Japan by audiences who were inspired
by the films.
Realizing the importance of sharing the Gaia's message with as many people
as possible, this grass-roots or word-of-mouth distribution network continues to
grow, and to this date, the films have been screened over 5,600 times and have
been seen by over 2.2 million people in Japan alone.
“Every single one of you matters. Every single one of you makes a difference. People around the world are beginning to understand the damage that we have done to the environment, the hurt we are doing to human societies.” “There are more and more people who understand what is right to do, what is wrong to do, what they can do, what they should do.” “That’s the most important message: You make the difference.”
Jane Goodall from “Gaia Symphony No.4”
Message from Gaia Network Australia
2011 has had a terrible start with great disasters happening all over the World. In our region, Australia, New Zealand and Japan have faced the worst of it.
We have been awed by the force of Mother Earth. The number of natural disasters is accelerating and getting more damaging across the globe. Urgent action is needed by all of us. We’ve all experienced the recent natural disasters and share the pain of those who have endured it.
Those of us who can, must keep alive the light of the future of Earth by making a difference.
The concept of the Mother Earth (Gaia) is calmly expressed through the words of the prominent people interviewed in this film.
They ask: What kind of planet do we want for our children and their future?
What is nature? What is the Earth? What is purpose for humans existing?
It is a film giving us ideas to plan our planet’s future.
What is Gaia Network Australia?-
Gaia Network Australia is a group of individuals who are concerned about the future of the environment
of our planet. We wish that we could remember for a moment to change a little of how we live and
choose other options, then, we could possible save our planet, Earth.
By screening this film we hope to raise awareness in others.
Our aim is to share the message from this film with others as much as possible and also to help people
who have suffered from natural disasters by raising funds for the QLD Premier’s Disaster Appeal and for
the Australian Red Cross Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal 2011.
We will be donating 50% of the proceeds from this event to each appeal.
We welcome any support from individuals, groups or organizations who can donate funds or
can provide products for the Raffle or can be a volunteer staff at the event.
