VIDEO: Nature Isle Futures Conference (part I) – The “Big Idea”

The Nature Isle Futures Conference, the first of its kind, was held in Dominica on the October 31, 2018. Its purpose, according to organizers, was to promote reflection as Dominica celebrates 40 years of Independence.
Dominica News Online (DNO) presents video recordings of the conference in three parts. The first part speaks to the “Big Idea” which is about the vision of making Dominica the Nature Island of the World in word and deed by 2020. It seeks to explain why being such a global icon is important and some initial ideas on how this can be achieved.
Part I, posted below, is presented by lawyer Henry Kasate Shillingford.
The complete video of the entire conference can be viewed on DTV.

    What is new about the Nature Island of the World concept? This is a copy of Bernard Wiltshire
    Ten theses. So long Dominica has been promoting itself as the Nature Island. The concept of making Dominica the first Climate Resilient nation of the World is already making traction globally and Dominica has already started reaping tremendous benefits from this well articulated by our Prime Minister. UWP efforts to discredit the PM vision with this fallacious and misleading Nature Island concept is despicable and should be ignored.

    Nature Island of the World? Sounds like a concept I heard from Bernard Wiltshire? You all forgot the ten thesis he prepared?

    I’ve listened to quite a bit in this video and I did not hear Bernard Wiltshire’s name mentioned once, could someone who may have attended the conference or listened to the video correct me if I am wrong.
