Dominica Could Lead the World in Sustainability & Clean Energy

Dominica prevails as one of the most steadfast countries in the world when it comes to sustainability—it was simply a matter of time until the world caught wind of our way of life. And, this past September, much of the world did as Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit spoke to the United Nations about making Dominica the first completely climate resilient country on earth.

On February 6, 2018, eyes were on Dominica once again as former U.S. President Bill Clinton attended a press conference on the island where he proclaimed it has a tremendous capacity to be a global leader in producing clean energy. By virtue of the island’s commitment to building climate resilient homes and its sustainable initiatives, Clinton asserted Dominica’s existing yet untapped potential: “We have the chance to make it [the Caribbean] the first sustainable region in the world.”

At Fort Young Hotel, we’ve already begun paving the way to a greener, more sustainable lifestyle. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, we’ve begun using biodegradable food containers and detergents while also sourcing local products from Roseau’s markets and farmers. And, we’ve worked tirelessly to donate all leftover food to those left homeless. So, as Fort Young Hotel lays the groundwork for a strengthened Dominica, those who visit—particularly via our Voluntourism Package—will be a part of a globally crucial sustainable practice.

While Dominica may be small, we have undoubtedly proved our stature as clean power pioneers, thus reducing the threat of climate change worldwide. All of us at Fort Young are ecstatic about Clinton’s recent visit to the Nature Island and grateful for the light that is being shone on Dominica’s strength and leadership.
