It is critical for food se­cu­ri­ty, employment, poverty eradication, tourism, trade, trans­porta­tion, culture, biodiversity, en­er­gy, sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, cli­mate ac­tion, conservation, activism, global connectivity and security.’

In the Caribbean, the ocean provides so much more than leisure and relaxation. It is critical for food se­cu­ri­ty, employment, poverty eradication, tourism, trade, trans­porta­tion, culture, biodiversity, en­er­gy, sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, cli­mate ac­tion, conservation, activism, global connectivity and security.

Despite the small size of the islands that frame it, the Caribbean sea, at over 1,063,000 square miles, is one of the largest seas in the world and is home to the second largest barrier reef, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, and the largest reef system in the Northern Hemisphere.

Coastal communities and over 116 million coastal dwellers in the region rely on the Caribbean sea for various reasons. With so much more water than land under its jurisdiction (Jamaica alone has jurisdiction over waters 23 times greater than its land mass) the region’s bond to the ocean is inextricable.

Live & Learn

“To live deliberately on the edges of things, in active resistance to a world that places all its value on speed and productivity…It is a reminder that more than ever we need people willing to pause and listen, to open their hearts to what is uncomfortable, and to hold space and attention until the new thing emerges…Perhaps…if we keep practicing…we will hear whispers of a new beginning.”
