Roseau, Dominica: Dominica celebrated the Tourism Awareness Month Layou Beach Clean Up project on Wednesday. The activities started on May 1 and ended on May 31, 2023.
Ministry of Tourism took to Facebook and shared glimpses of the Beach Clean-Up project. It added that the project is marked as the perfect way to celebrate Tourism Awareness Month. Darren Lloyd, the Parliamentary Representative of the St. Joseph Constituency, and the Layou Improvement Community attended the Beach Clean Up project.
It said, “As Tourism Awareness Month comes to an end today, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by joining forces with Darren Lloyd, the Parliamentary Representative of the St. Joseph Constituency, and the Layou Improvement Community for the Layou Beach Clean Up project.”
Community Tourism is the heart and soul of the authentic Dominica experience. It’s about working together to enhance our tourism products and build resilient communities.
That’s why the Ministry of Tourism is excited to partner with communities to enhance their community tourism products and drive economic development in their area. The Ministry of Tourism also expressed heartfelt delight in welcoming several schools of Dominica as they showed their support to the Beach Clean Up project.
They were thrilled to see enthusiastic groups from Dominica State College, Isaiah Thomas Secondary School, and the local community come together on Saturday for the beach clean-up.
The Ministry of Tourism said, “Together, we made a difference. The beach looks stunning now; let’s keep it clean and preserve the natural doozy that draws visitors to our shores.”
The Tourism Awareness Month of Dominica is one of the efforts of the government to fulfil the commitment to achieving sustainable goals. The Nature Isle of the Caribbean has promoted eco-tourism to preserve the natural assets of the country so that the environment can remain healthy and free from pollution.
Along with that, Dominica also vowed to become the world’s best climate-resilient nation, and steps have been taken to fulfil the aim. It included the construction of climate-resilient infrastructure such as houses, hospitals and many more. The construction of geo-thermal power plant also started to reduce carbon footprints.
