We hope to motivate them to participate in environmental protection by sensitizing them about the issues we are faced with, pollution being one of the most prominent,” said Public Relations Officer, Kitwani Carbon.Carbon was named Dominica’s “Junior Tourism Minister,” after she emerged winner of a Caribbean Tourism Organization Youth Conference in St. Maarten last year.Addressing the launching ceremony, the Minister for Environment, Natural Resources, Physical Planning and Fisheries, Dr. Kenneth Darroux commended the students for playing their part in preserving of the natural environment.Darroux noted that his government was engaged in several initiatives to promote conservation, including the annual November 4th beautification programme and the monitoring of quarrying activities along the west coast and the impact on the fishing industry.Darroux said the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration was also reviewing the Fisheries Act to regulate the use of fishing resources and pointed to Dominica’s anti-whaling stance as further evidence of a commitment to environmental protection.“At the very top level we recognise the economic importance of preserving our natural environment. At a ministerial level we are currently putting legislation together to ensure that environmental laws are current and applicable.“We are also looking to convert the environmental coordinating unit into a full-fledged government division,” he told the CHS students.January 27th has been designated Convent High School’s Annual Green Day.Dominica Vibes News Tweet Sharelast_img read more
