SUNx Partnership to Build Climate Resilience Centre in Belize

SUNx has signed an MOU with Lighthouse Reef Conservation Institute (LRCI) to develop a Climate learning, innovation and resilience centre which will integrate and support the research on climate change being carried out by LRCI.

Lighthouse Reef, one of only four atolls in the western hemisphere, will be a living laboratory for marine and terrestrial research and climate change science. Blake W. Ross, LRCI Director said:

“The underlying principle of LRCI is that building sustainability and resilience means helping society to work more like an ecosystem, and targets the long-term viability of diverse, natural communities. Through our partnership with SUNx we will strengthen our work on climate resilience and become part of a global network committed to innovation and education.”

The Strong Universal Network SUNx, is a program of the EU based, not for profit Green Growth and Travelism Institute, and a legacy to the late Maurice Strong - Sustainable Development Pioneer.

Its goal is to promote Climate Resilient, Impact-Travel with good & bad effects measured and managed coherently: with Green Growth at the core and, 2050-proof in line with the Paris Accords and the W.E.F. 4th Industrial Revolution.

SUNx has developed a system for Impact-Travel, Learning, Innovation and Resilience. It is based on a network of cloud connected, solar powered pre-fabricated Centres for local Community focus. Shipped in a single container, they can be set up rapidly, without extensive machinery.

Lipman said:

“SUNx will bring together the rapidly expanding global climate resilience knowledge and response, with local conditions, requirements and practice. This is an ongoing need, given the extensive research, massive databases and constant innovation. They will be operated by smart, next generation, climate change curators, with graduate trainee support through Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships, provided by industry CSR support. SUNx has committed to enrol 105 Caribbean graduate trainees in its Impact-Travel Lifetime Learning System, designed to provide graduate training in climate change response. 5 will receive $3000 Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships.”
