    We’re pleased to share that on, June 1st, 2023, Dr. Keith Nurse, President of COSTAATT, and Mr. Omar Mohammed, CEO of the Cropper Foundation, signed a ground-breaking Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the COSTAATT City Campus.

    This MoU marks the start of a collaboration between COSTAATT and the Cropper Foundation on an Inter-American Bank (IDB)-Lab-funded project focused on the Catalysation of the Circular Economy in Trinidad and Tobago.

    Under this partnership, the aim is to map the local circular economy and develop a robust support mechanism for circular economy business ideas within T&T. Our team will explore innovative solutions that promote sustainability, resource efficiency, and economic growth.

    This venture is a testament to COSTAATT’s commitment to driving positive change and fostering a more sustainable future for Trinidad and Tobago. By leveraging the collective expertise and resources of COSTAATT and the Cropper Foundation, we are confident that we can make a significant impact on the circular economy landscape.

    COSTAATT is immensely grateful to the IDB-Lab for their support in making this project a reality. Their funding will fuel our efforts to unlock the full potential of the circular economy and drive sustainable development in our nation.

    Also present at today’s signing were Dr. Sherwyn Millette, Sustainability Consultant at COSTAATT and Ms Alyssa Black, Project Officer at The Cropper Foundation.

    Stay tuned for updates as we embark on this transformative journey towards building a more sustainable Trinidad and Tobago.
