Social Impact Project for Climate Activism in the Caribbean


How This Works

In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

A small group of teachers and students from Richmond Vale Academy will together with a big group of Vincentians make our island and people ready for climate change.

We have cleaned up 9 tons of trash from rivers and beaches, planted 10,000 trees, set up 2 model gardens, produced 20 TV and Radio Programs and taught 2000 people face to face.


The Richmond Vale Academy is a model school and farm on the island. We try to grow and produce our own food, mostly organic. 

Join a 6 months intensive program with studies, courses and action to make the small island nation of St. Vincent Climate Compliant.

Participants will experience community living, cooking, cleaning, harvesting food, garden farming, building furniture, and other skills needed to be a self-sufficient leader who can do anything they put their mind to. In the end, the program will train students to be environmental activists that are able to make a stand for the future of this world.


There's no special requirements but you should have open-mind and be ready to work!
