A non-profit, non-governmental membership organization based in the Kingston and St. Andrew area, projects are implemented all over the island. We are a registered company limited by guarantee under Jamaica’s Companies Act (non-profit).
Projects include beach and gully clean-ups, photographic competitions, recycling projects, the production of a musical stage play entitled “Nuff Respect for Nature” which toured 40 schools island-wide in 1994, the writing of a page on the environment for the Daily Gleaner, a five-minute radio programme called EnviroNotes, and a World Bank funded demand side management energy conservation project with the Jamaica Public Service Company, environmental films, a number of annual events, and advocacy campaigns. They also produce environmental materials, a biannual e-magazine, and deliver regular talks on the environment and field trips. They operate a long-standing environmental education programme in Jamaican schools and we are advocates for the protection of Jamaica’s natural resources through our law and advocacy work.
The Mission of the Jamaica Environment Trust is to protect Jamaica’s natural resources using education, advocacy and the law to influence individual and organizational behaviour and public policy and practice.
