GAIA-EHS courses and consulting solutions are based on the following premises:

  1. Environmental problems are complex and require a multidisciplinary approach.
  2. Environmental problems have to be solved using Root Cause Analysis.
  3. Solving environmental problems requires understanding and skills development in multiple learning dimensions.
