PRESS RELEASE – The Cultural Development Foundation in collaboration with Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort will be conducting a workshop, “Living Green – everyone counts”, on Wednesday July15th at the Conference Room of the CDF from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m
The workshop will be facilitated by Finola Jennings Clarke and Perry Baptiste, from the collaborating entities, both of whom share a passion for conservation practices.
In 2010, Finola Jennings Clarke, who now heads the Business Development and Marketing Department at the CDF facilitated a workshop on Green Waste Management for hotels with support from Travel Foundation UK.
CEO of Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort Mark Ozawa and his wife Linda Ozawa, who in the past have assisted with the hosting of exhibitions and the sale of Saint Lucian artwork, have again lent their support to the CDF by providing the expertise of the head of their “green team” in the person of Perry Baptiste for the successful running of the workshop.
The workshop aims to assist staff in a) reducing energy consumption, b) eliminating wastage by identifying common habits that encourage such and c) highlighting areas of savings which they stand to benefit from by changing seemingly harmless practices.
As a direct result of the workshop, the CDF office will be closed from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday July 15th.
