At the Singapore Writers Festival (2018), we met Mallika Naguran of Gaia Discovery and the Gaia Guide, an online lifestyle publication full of environmental news and inspirational life stories.


And people, sometimes ordinary people, who make a difference.


Untold travel stories and unchartered territories. Exciting tales based on personal experience. Services, products, books and promotions.


A treasure trove of information on fun, exciting, life-enhancing and earth-sustaining eco-living.



Gaia Discovery offers news and reviews on eco-living, tourism and travel, nature and biodiversity, sustainable development, adventure, festivals, heritage and culture from Asia Pacific, and beyond.


Gaia, the name of the Greek earth goddess, is used to describe the self-regulating state of the earth as formulated in the 1960’s by Dr James Lovelock, an independent research scientist. Lovelock’s theory explains the Gaia hypothesis, which later became referred to as the Gaia Theory.

Lovelock’s ecological hypothesis proposes that living and nonliving parts of the earth form a complex interacting system that can be thought of as a single organism. Lovelock says that all living things have a regulatory effect on the Earth’s environment, and together promote life.
