Marine ecosystems are important sources of livelihoods, economic revenue and ecosystem services for Rodrigues. The island has the largest fringing reef of the Indian Ocean with a wide shallow lagoon covering 240 km2. However, there is a gap pertaining to the Blue Economy education. It is therefore important to teach young people about the relationship between marine ecosystems and its opportunities for their future.
 
The programme aims at equipping four specific target groups: primary school students, high school students, young and senior professionals (fisheries communities), with knowledge and skills to become engaged, productive and successful in investing in Rodrigues Blue Future and economy through sensibilisation programs at schools and workshops. With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, Goal 14 states that oceans are key drivers of sustainable economic growth. The conceptualisation of ‘blue economy’ emerged and demonstrated practical strategies to ensure that economic activities do not compromise the long-term capacity of ocean ecosystems to support related activities, remain resilient and healthy.
 
We are a group of young graduates who after their postgraduate studies have had some difficulties to find a job in their fields of expertise. Instead of letting our talents go to waste, we have decided to make use it to create positive changes in our society. We invite you to support us in this initiative to empower our youngsters and fishermen and create the change we want to see.
