Jaden Kréyol é Bitasyon: two complementary resilience models – from April 2021 to March 2022
Young generations are the key to resilience to climate change: the Creole garden is an integration tool supporting their awareness and involvement.
The objectives of the project are of several types:
- Educate the younger generation so that they can adapt their behavior to the impacts of climate change;
- Organise cooperation and the sharing of good practices between the territories;
- Deepen knowledge of key concepts, such as biodiversity, conservation of the natural environment, planning and sustainable urban development;
- Create an open and sustainable network of climate resilience actors in order to extend experiences.
- Make available, over an indefinite period, an undeveloped, cultivable area dedicated to experimentation;
- Educate and train young generations in the environment and sustainable development;
- Improve the knowledge of the young generation on issues of climate resilience;
- Organise a reforestation operation all around the two selected schools, one in Grand-Anse and the other in Nippes (planting a mixed fruit hedge);
- Create a Creole garden in selected schools.
The project meets interesting educational objectives in terms of understanding and applying adapted and resilient agricultural and reforestation techniques. The partnership in schools helps promote a structured framework for the project and ensure sustainability beyond the Karayib Klima project, in particular by connecting educational teams. The project is also developing a relevant comparative Rural – Urban approach.
