We are happy to share with you the new Climate Compliance Conference Book!
From the introduction:
Believing that everyone should be given the opportunity to participate, irrespective of their circumstances, the CCC program works with a diverse range of stakeholders ranging across cultural, social and economic boundaries. Participating members include local community and family members, international volunteers, community organisations, institutions as well as government bodies.
During these first five years, the CCC has impacted upon the lives of 50.000 people in Saint Vincent and abroad.
This program has been the platform of need, from which a springboard of hope has been built; to enable and empower several groups and communities. People have dived into action for positive climate change, from 2012 to 2016:
- 25.000 trees have been planted.
- Farmers have been supported by using more sustainable agriculture techniques.
- 15.000 students across SVG have been taught hundreds of lessons.
- 20.000 climate compliance newspapers have been produced and distributed.
Furthermore, lessons on global warming and climate change have been given to 3.000 people visiting the Academy and to another 5.000 students and teachers at universities and colleges in Colombia, Guyana, Costa Rica, USA, England, Germany, Denmark, Norway, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Jamaica.
It is, therefore, because of our dedication to climate change adaptation that we have chosen to celebrate our achievements and to share the lessons learned by writing this book. Within it, you will learn of the reasons for the program, its methodology and its application; along with the outcomes gained and the distance travelled over the past 5 years and our vision and plans for the next 5 years.
We hope you enjoy reading it.
