It’s become a rather important stop on the sustainability circuit in the Caribbean: St Estatius’ Statia Sustainability Conference, now in its eighth year.
And now the Dutch Caribbean destination is putting its focus on Caribbean festivals, with a theme of “Culture, Festivals, the Economy – A Sustainable Way Forward.”
This year’s conference at Statia’s Mike van Putten Youth Centre will include presenters like Allen Cooper, Anthony Reid, and Gerjanne Voortman, with the agenda set for Sept. 27-28.
It’s a major event for Statia, the tiny getaway a short flight from St Maarten often dubbed “The Hidden Treasure” of the Caribbean.
The St. Eustatius Tourism Development Foundation is hosting the event.
