Climate Action, Fisheries, and The Island School

Hi Redfishies – I am planning a unique experience to visit an incredible teaching and learning environment, and my former employer in The Bahamas.  This course will explore sustainable fisheries, education, and travel all set in The Bahamas at the Island School.  Come snorkel, boat and learn with about the culture of The Bahamas.

Redfish School of Change and The Island School have teamed up to offer an unusual learning experience focusing on climate action leadership, fisheries, and sustainability education at The Island School (TIS) on Eleuthera Island. Learn from local fishers, energy experts, fisheries researchers, and educators at TIS and the Cape Eleuthera Institute, a model place-based educational institution in The Bahamas.  This all-inclusive experience (room, board, and on-island travel are all included) will have you eating fresh seafood, diving and snorkeling with sharks and patch reefs, boating in the cerulean waters above a 4000 ft deep “tongue of the ocean”, all while learning about climate leadership and conducting research in the Caribbean.
