Event Synopsis

2022 SCHEDULE

As scientific consensus on the existential crisis that is climate change grows, it’s clearer than ever that countries with fossil energy-based economies — like Trinidad and Tobago, and now Guyana — have to reimagine how they fit into a net-zero world. Beyond the economics, Caribbean small island states remain on the frontlines of climate injustice, and must now reimagine what a good life can look like in a region with worsening storms, eroding shores, and dying reefs. For this “Big Idea” discussion, we bring together a panel of inter-generational activists, economists, and development experts to imagine a future path that’s both practical and sustainable. Jamaican activist, writer and filmmaker Esther Figueroa, Trinidadian activist and disruptor Gillian Goddard, and Trinidadian climate consultant Ryan Assiu join host Omar Mohammed, CEO of the Cropper Foundation

In partnership with the Cropper Foundation
