On June 15, 2024, the Caribbean Climate Network’s Grenada Chapter hosted an engaging and informative event at the Sir Eric Matthew Gairy Botanical Gardens in St. George’s. This event, an Outing and Discussion held from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM, brought together a few environmental enthusiasts and climate advocates to discuss critical issues related to weather patterns, drought, water scarcity, the importance of trees, and their connection to climate change.



The event featured a presentation on the soon-to-be-launched Caribbean Climate Network – Grenada Chapter and interactive discussions led by Country Representative, Mrs. Kenia Charles. Despite a modest turnout, attendees had the opportunity to share their personal stories related to the climate crisis and suggest potential solutions. The conversation dabbled on the vital role of trees in combating climate change, highlighting their ability to sequester carbon, provide shade, and preserve water resources.

“We are thrilled with the depth of the discussion at the event,” said Kenia Charles. She also noted, “This action, which is part of the ‘I Love the Caribbean’ Campaign, is one of many happening across the region from June 14-16 to draw attention to the urgent need for climate adaptation measures and a just transition.”

Participants were also able to share their stories and experiences, fostering a collaborative space for discussing solutions to climate change. The event concluded with a call to action, encouraging attendees to take small steps such as planting trees in their yards, volunteering in future activities of the organization and signing a petition which can be viewed via the following link tinyurl.com/lovecaribbean.
