You may have heard of the small island nation of Dominica. A couple of years ago, they stood up for the protection of whales by no longer supporting Japan's agenda of reestablishing commercial whaling. Now, I’m excited to share that Dominica is about to launch a comprehensive effort to transition their nation into a truly green and sustainable future. You might now be asking yourself what the heck does that mean, a truly green and sustainable future?
Well let me tell you: it means becoming self sufficient with renewable energy production, organic farming for both local consumption and export, clean water for all citizens, modern sewage treatment, a transition to and support for non polluting industries, universal heath care, better education opportunities, maintaining and protecting their nature environment on both land and sea and the list goes on. Let’s hope all goes well for Dominica with this precedent setting effort and Dominica becomes a model for the world – a green future is a legacy to be proud of.
