Blamed for 1 in 6 deaths worldwide, pollution (air, water, and land), costs the international economy an estimated U$4.6 trillion. Maurice Alexander and Jessica Ramoutar, of our partners, the Caribbean Industrial Research Institute (CARIRI), speak of ongoing work to monitor ‘stack emissions’ (from industries and factories), and the surrounding ‘ambient air’.
The ‘green’ focus continues in a conversation with the President of the Caribbean Association of Local Government Bodies, Anthony Roberts, at the launch of a ‘global covenant of mayors’ on combatting climate change.
With pollution and modern lifestyles impacting health and wellness, Daviter Powell and Denise Nurse come by to talk about the services offered through their respective companies, Allure Azurri and Cavitation Cove, to help people to return to the state nature intended.
We also have a repeat presentation on ‘available funding sources for start-ups’ by Associate Economics Professor, Dr. Lucile Sabas, of Andrews University, Michigan, USA, at a business development seminar, in Trinidad, in early May
