Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has been devastated by severe weather disasters year after year over the past 10 years. In response, Richmond Vale Academy took decisive action by initiating a programme called “The Saint Vincent Climate Compliance Conference 2012 – 2021”.
The Climate Compliance Conference aims to bring people together to take action.
We start 6 Months teams March, August and November.
We start 1 Month teams July and November.
Since 2012, 300 national and international students and teachers together with thousands of people across St. Vincent and the Grenadines have answered to the threat of climate disaster.
During the past seven years:
30,000 trees have been planted.
• 30 tons of garbage collected from beaches, rivers and villages.
• 50 Organic Home gardens built with families in North Leeward.
• Six Bio gas digesters installed at farmers, schools and families.
• Numerous information leaflets, books, booklets, radio and TV programmes aired in St. Vincent and abroad, mobilizing people to take local actions.
• Today more than 1000 people visit Richmond Vale Academy annually to learn about Global Warming and Climate Change; see results of the efforts made in the sustainable campus concerning renewable energy with solar and biogas, organic farming, agroforestry, permaculture, sustainable tourism and the importance of mangroves and reefs.
