Tourism Education Programme ensures that future generations take an active role in sustaining the federation’s tourism product

Moving towards a plastic free St. Kitts and Nevis is a work in progress, but thanks to the Tourism Education Programme, children as young as primary schoolers are being taught the benefits of recycling in order to sustain the Federation’s tourism product.Shaline Welcome, Community/Education Tourism Officer, while appearing on the radio-television show “Working for You” on February 06, said that various projects were initiated to teach students about sustainable tourism.

Students were asked to make scrapbooks around the topic “How does pollution affect land and coastal areas and the negative impacts that it would have on our tourism industry?” The second part of the project was the creation of souvenirs from recycled items.
