Our Mission

Gaia is an interscholastic magazine run by the Independent School Sustainability Coalition (ISSC). Our goal is to create a publication open to every student attending an ISSC school, containing submissions from both students and faculty. We publish a wide range of submissions pertaining to environmental issues and nature, and we look for everything — opinion pieces, news updates, poetry, stories, and visual art. We publish every two months, with every issue focusing on a different environmental issue. Our aim is to spread a philosophy of earthly love and environmental awareness throughout our student culture. Enjoy your time on Gaia.

Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.
