Louino Robillard Haiti
My name is Louino Robillard. As a community development specialist and from the Climate Friendly Tourism (CFT) class of 2023, after I was awarded a scholarship to study through SUNx Malta in collaboration with ITS Malta. I have gained crucial insights into how climate change impacts our communities. The knowledge, skills, and tools I acquired during my first year has empowered me to train leaders in Haiti to form a chapter of climate champions. I am deeply passionate about promoting community-led development through the practice of “Konbit,” which means doing it together in solidarity. I believe that through “Konbit,” we can unite for the climate and for ourselves. As a chapter leader, my mission is to foster a dedicated community committed to positively impacting our environment and the local tourism industry.
