  • Dr. Thompson, St. Vincent

    Here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, we are attempting to become a green island, looking at energy, at the way we conserve our environment. I believe Richmond Vale Academy is one of those places where you can get the information and education and certified programs in terms of what you really need to know about helping to save this world, our planet."

  • Diana, Romania

    I am very proud to say I have been part of the greatest team there ever was. First let me welcome you to this piece of heaven we call Richmond in St. Vincent, I'm sure you love it (who wouldn't?!) and I know you will have a blast while learning and working here. I can vouch for the learning experience. I learned to never give up!"

  • Demion, St. Vincent

    Before RVA's public awareness campaign, many Vincentians did not know what permaculture was. Dreams of getting gold in a global treelympics were farfetched and plastic bottles were an environmental menace. Organic food, GMO awareness and so on were not highly extent. Through RVA's intervention with its 2012 -2021 Climate Compliance agenda, SVG is now a different nation with a more positive environmental attitude."
