A Glimpse of a Climate-smart future
A Glimpse of a Climate-smart future
The St Patrick Environmental and Community Tourism Organisation (SPECTO), as part of its public education efforts is proposing to host a GREEN Event exemplifying the economic and financial viability of conservation efforts. The Green Economy involves business opportunities such as Turtle Tours, Nature tours, craft market, all natural food products, and branded climate smart products. The philosophical underpinnings of the Green Event are aspects of Climate smart operations such as Resource conservation, Increased Safety and improved human health, exclusive dependence on renewable energy, biodiversity assurance, greenhouse gas reduction, and waste reduction.

Problems:
Wider Grenadian population need to be made aware of the benefits with respect to a climate-smart future, leading to full participation in protecting the environment. This includes children, youth, parents, teachers, businesses, and government. Also, visitors.

Indirect / Direct causes:
1) There are few clearly visible examples of the consequences of not protecting the environment;
2) Several agencies and groups are advocating for a future that the public may not be able to conceptualize;
3) There are limited resources for the implementation of a comprehensive programme to encourage climate friendly practices. This may be a question of spending for now or the future.
4) Access to and convenience of plastic wrapping in commercial activities is the norm, and convenient for carrying food and other items, consequently filling up
garbage bins, discarded on beaches, rivers, roadsides, etc.
5) Environment and our future is in the school curriculum, but needs to be a priority topic of learning both in the natural sciences and the social sciences, as well as early childhood reading. This must include human practices contributing to negative effects.
