The Environment Cadet Program was launched in 2004, and was designed to create awareness about the issues that plague the environment, which would then lead to positive action. Today there are several hundred students spanning Antigua and Barbuda in 37 schools! These cadets daily live the Environment Cadet Motto.
“Working together for a better future”
The program is sponsored by the Environment Division and the Sustainable Island Resource Management Mechanism (SIRMM).
What are Environment Cadets?
Environment Cadets are young people who are interested in preserving, conserving and protecting the environment. This cadre of young people are involved in field trips, competitions, lectures and fun activities as they learn about their environment and how they can care for it.
The Environment Cadet program is run by individual schools who have had the program launched there. The Environment Education Officer within the Environment Division is the person in charge of the schools. This Officer is further assisted by supervisors who visit the schools.
