The ministry seeks to ensure that all students are informed about the effects of climate change and the role they can play in protecting their environment.

The Ministry of Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology continues to provide information to students island wide, on the health and environmental effects of climate change.

In this vein, Communications Officer in the Ministry of Sustainable Development Mr. Lucius Doxerie, made a presentation to Ciceron Secondary School students.

The students were educated about climate changes that can lead to more severe hurricanes, flooding and landslides. They were also alerted to the impact of pollution and the improper disposal of garbage which ends up in drains, and is washed to rivers and seas affecting water quality, marine life, and the health of residents.

The education process will continue with visits to additional schools around the island in order to ensure that as many students as possible are educated and informed about the impact of climate change and the role they can play in addressing climate change and protecting their environment.
