Protect Our Future (POF) is a grassroots environmental organisation based in the Cayman Islands that raises awareness of various issues impacting the Cayman Islands. POF also provides a platform where the youth of Cayman can voice their concerns about how policies and legislation may impact today’s youth as well as future generations. In connection with this, POF will be holding a march on Friday, March 25 at 2pm in front of the Governor’s house on West Bay Road in order to raise awareness about climate change.

Thomas Dickens, Co-President of POC, shared that the purpose of the Climate Change March, which aligns with Greta Thunberg’s #FridaysForFuture, is to raise awareness surrounding the increased education, remediation and legislation requirements surrounding the following issues:

The continued use of environmentally damaging single-use plasticsThe overdevelopment and lack of enforced regulation on natural ecosystems The consistent use of non-reef-safe sunscreensThe lack of enforcement and consequences surrounding illegal environmental practicesThe limited action supporting Cayman’s goal of 70 per cent renewable energy by 2037

Members of the public who wish to show their support for Cayman’s youth and this specific climate change issue should attend the Climate Change March this Friday at 2pm.
