We need to talk… Yes!!! It’s the big statement. Are you wondering if you did something wrong? Well… let’s see. You did more than one thing wrong. I want to say that one of those things is being born in a century where no one really communicates anymore but I would be a hypocrite to do that (for obvious reasons)
Thousands of years ago to receive a piece of information, it could either be an emergency or not you will have to wait several hours to receive it. But innovative people starting with Graham Bell thought that we should receive information faster than riding a horse through miles of the country. Nowadays we can just click, double click and an information can travel to the other side of the world. Yes…these are all brilliant. Now to my problem.
Some people might say that we are inferior because we are youth. We don’t know anything because we are still young. We don’t have enough experience to give suggestions. But I want to say that we do have a voice and I believe that is the message we need to be sending out there and I think that is the message that goes on in the minds of the Blue Economy interns. We feel like we have a responsibility to look after the best interest of our country.
The Seychelles Island is one of the most fascinating destination in the world. Not my opinion it’s a worldwide opinion. With its unique placement and out of the ordinary rock composition. We may not all want to get scientific about the blue economy, but I think we all have the shared interest of making sure that our home upholds its beauty and its endemic composition. Seychelles as a whole is an astounding Micro Continent; from its colorful population to its natural ecosystem. So…do you still want to say that the blue economy is a stupid concept? Or do you still want to say that the blue economy doesn’t benefit you?
The ocean is the key to mostly every door in Seychelles, it could be because you want to open your own shop (let me point out that the supplies will come on a ship that will float over the ‘ocean’) or you could simply want to be a hotel manager. One way or the other it all connects to the ocean. So think again…how important do you think the blue economy is? How important is the Blue Economy to your future? I’ll answer the question. Very, Very…Very (there aren’t enough very to put before important) and extremely important. Tourism and Fisheries the two main pillars also depends on the Blue Economy.
I’m not asking anyone to buy a cargo ship tomorrow but to simply put the word out there about how important the Blue Economy is, or read the blogs of my other colleagues. They write about how each of their organisation contribute to the Blue Economy and they also give their own views about the blue economy.
