Environmental education and awareness is key to effecting change. We have a duty to benefit and serve our society as best we can, and that includes how we prepare the next generation.


All of The Jamaica Environment Trust’s (JET) projects include a component on education and awareness. However, we also have specific education and awareness programmes.

For over two decades JET has been delivering environmental education programmes in Jamaican schools and communities. Our flagship environmental education programme, the Schools’ Environment Programme (SEP) established in 1997, is the longest running programme of its kind in Jamaica.

International Coastal Cleanup Day activities, which JET is national coordinator of in Jamaica,and takes place annually in September, is a key opportunity to bring awareness to solid waste management issues. Our largest environmental education project is the Clean Coasts Project, which includes the Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica public education campaign.
