At the initiative of L’Effet Papillon, Convergences, DEAL Guadeloupe, CCI des Îles de Guadeloupe, Comité 21 and French Tech Guadeloupe, the Forum of Transitions – For a Sustainable Caribbean will be held on September 21 and 22 online. It offers a virtual space for dialogue and exchange between actors and organizations working for a sustainable and inclusive development in the Caribbean.

Born from the will to gather and federate all organizations from different sectors, and concerned citizens committed to a sustainable and inclusive Caribbean, co-constructed with local Working Groups, the Forum will highlight the initiatives and solutions proposed by the actors of change who are committed to a sustainable, responsible and inclusive economic development of the territories. Taking into account the specificities of the Caribbean islands, the Forum will give voice to those who are acting concretely and on their own scale to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Overseas Trajectory 5.0.

During two days, September 21 and 22, 2021, workshops, round tables, stands and more will be offered to raise awareness, inform, equip and train on the economic, social, educational and environmental issues of our territories! A “Focus Entreprises” is realized within the framework of the 3rd edition of the “Professional Meetings of Sustainable Development” by the CCI des Iles de Guadeloupe.
