Gary Alexander is the author of eGaia, Growing a peaceful sustainable Earth through communications. He developed the positive vision of a sustainable future described in it over many years. He has been working to implement these visions through a range of community projects to ‘re-invent community’ to create a ‘connected community’ that is sustainable and in which people work for mutual benefit. As many such local communities develop and are linked regionally, nationally and globally they will form ‘Earth Connected’, an organism-like global culture. Gary Alexander worked for the Open University for 37 years, was a pioneer in collaborative learning online, has written, worked and dreamt about sustainable communities since the 1970s, helped create Summer Schools, Dance Camps, Fairs, was a Trustee of the Transition Network, and dances tango.
