Understanding that the Caribbean comprises of Small Island Developing States and is vulnerable to the effects of climate change, the society created a yearlong Sustainable Development Goals campaign in an effort to promote awareness of the goals.  


The 2022/2023 CBS Committee implemented the campaign in August 2022. The aim of the campaign was to ensure that every activity organized by the society involved one of the 17 SDGs. The campaign has two main objectives. Firstly, to promote the sustainable development goals to the CBS members and wider DMU student population and secondly, to showcase that the goals can be promoted creatively through various activities.  



The Activities 

The Caribbean Society has been able to organize several activities since the start of the academic year. Each activity/event has been embedded with one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The table below highlights the activities that have been held from September 2022 to March 2023:

With one more semester to go for the 2022/23 academic year, the society will host several more activities that will feature more of the SDGs, particularly SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-Being and SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities.  

Prime Minister of Barbados, Hon Mia Mottley once said, “I don’t call it climate change. It’s change for those who are not affected by the crisis. For us, it is a crisis”. Although the Caribbean Society is one of the smallest societies on campus, it is our responsibility to ensure that people are aware of the crisis that befalls us as Caribbean nationals and adequately educate our members and other persons on how they can play a small role in resolving the crisis.
