We recognise that it is the people who have the power to build a holistic society.
With increasing population, and a more consumerist lifestyle globally, the earth's carrying capacity continues to be undermined.
Working with our participants, we use research, citizen science and education to identify and activate viable policy solutions to one of our greatest challenges.
This has become an even more urgent matter as the Caribbean region looks to expand its blue economy. As an organisation, we are committed to the sustainable use, innovation and stewardship of our ocean and its life-giving ‘blue’ resources. We embrace economic opportunities that protect and develop more intangible ‘blue’ resources such as traditional ways of life, carbon sequestration and coastal resilience in order to help the region mitigate the devastating effects of poverty and climate change.
Many small islands and coastal cities are heavily dependent on the blue economy for economic and social development. We believe that the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach does not always yield the most sustainable results. Our research quantifies the issue by establishing baseline data and allows our participants to design appropriate solutions for their unique needs.
Citizen science allows for public participation in data collection.
Our participants are engaged with the problem of marine litter. They understand that waste in the ocean is primarily driven by litter on land. They become directly involved in collecting the data, which leads to a deeper understanding of the issues, and leads to better informed decisions....learning transcends the 'classroom', and schools, organisations and communities are strengthened
Our education programme highlights the interconnectedness between social, economic, environmental, cultural and political issues. Our participants explore their environmental issues, identify appropriate solutions and take appropriate actions to improve their local environment. Participants are encouraged to think about the 'how' and 'why' questions and devise responsible solutions.
Information empowers and we cannot fix what we do not measure.
Our model promotes active learning and engagement. This approach empowers participants to share their voices and make a difference in their 'communities', both in local policy, development and implementation, as well as, in practical 'on the ground' activities, such as the school plastic programme, the corporate plastic elimination programme and community ghost gear removal initiative.
THE CHANGE STARTS WITH ME
TOGETHER WE ACHIEVE MORE
I must actively protect, preserve and improve life on this planet for all species. I will willingly serve, diligently work and creatively employ my skills and talents so that our planet may increase in beauty, prosper, and improve the wellbeing of all species.
Earth Ambassadeurs is a global organisation of volunteers dedicated to improving the whole person through education and behavioural change mechanisms that will improve how humans treat the natural environment.
Earth Ambassadeurs will be a positive influence for behavioural change in individuals, communities, businesses and governments universally so that one day we will live in a world where all of nature is treated equally, humans do not extract more than we need to survive and we do not produce waste that the earth cannot assimilate naturally.
