Education is the key
Education is a key component in creating a paradigm
shift about how citizens view the wealth of The
Bahamas, shifting from “sun, sand and sea” as the
only source of economics. Through education,
citizens can understand the value of natural resources
within The Bahamas, why they need to be protected,
become guardians and gatekeepers of their immediate
environment and empower them as owners and
partners in their management. Through knowledge
and skills-building, citizens can become actively
engaged in sustainable natural resource management.
GRASS ROOTS MODEL OF CONSERVATION
We Promote a Grass Roots Model of Conservation. It is a community-driven approach to preserving natural resources and the environment. It involves empowering local communities and stakeholders to take an active role in advocating for ownership, protecting their resources, identifying and addressing environmental issues and challenges in their own areas.
Decolonizing the Mind is a program that aims to promote sustainable and equitable relationships with the environment by incorporating indigenous perspectives, highlighting the impact of colonization, fostering a sense of responsibility towards the environment, emphasizing sustainability practices, recognizing sovereignty, fostering ownership, and promoting equitable partnerships.
As we think about our natural resources, It is essential to ask questions that delve into even the smallest aspects of our environment, ecology, and ecosystems. We must remain vigilant about everything that affect our resources in any part of The Bahamas, whether it be in the North of Grand Bahama or the South of Inagua.
EMPOWERING ACTION THROUGH KNOWLEDGE
Natural resources are the materials and substances found in the environment that can be used for economic gain. These resources can be divided into two categories: renewable and nonrenewable. Renewable resources are those that can be replenished or regenerated over time, such as sunlight, wind, and water. Nonrenewable resources, on the other hand, are finite and cannot be replaced once they are depleted, such as fossil fuels and minerals.
