June 2018: Social Movements in Sustainability

Editor's Note

We thought we would end on a positive note as the 2017-2018 school year comes to an end. This issue, we are focusing on the social movements that are bringing environmental issues to the forefront of the world’s attention.

As we explore social media’s effect on environmentalism, the philosophies surrounding conservation, and the changing politics about sustainability, we hope readers can be inspired to take action. So, as everyone leaves for the summer, enjoy this thought-provoking issue where we intertwine art, news and opinions from a wide range of perspectives and viewpoints.

We look forward to seeing you all again in the fall! Thank you to everyone who contributed to Gaia this year, whether through submissions or by reading our material. In total, we had nine schools submit work and we are extremely grateful. Shout out to Lawrence Academy, Lawrenceville School, Loomis Chaffee School, Milton Academy, Phillips Andover Academy, Phillips Exeter Academy, Roxbury Latin School, St. Mark's School, and Taft School! We couldn't have done it without you!
