Project description





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.
Main activities





  • 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.
Strengths



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.
