ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS GROUP (EAG)

RAISING AWARENESS AND PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE USE OF NATURAL RESOURCES 

The Environmental Awareness Group, or EAG as it is more commonly known, is a national, voluntary, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization.

For some years a small group of local persons had strong concerns about the pressures on Antigua- Barbuda's natural environment. A lead role was played by Desmond Nicholson and Edward T. Henry who were members of the Historical and Archaeological Society –  better known as HAS.   HAS is the main support group for the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda and other heritage concerns.
 
On June 9, 1988, the Museum hosted a meeting on environmental matters, coinciding with an environmental exhibit, and a slide show displaying environmental abuse in Antigua-Barbuda. The late Desmond Nicholson was one of the leading lights in founding the EAG.
 
EAG'S VISION
A society informed and empowered to sustainably use and manage its natural resources.
 
MISSION STATEMENT
  • To raise public awareness of the values of – and threats to - natural resources and to promote their sustainable management.
  • Motivate and promote civil society participation in environmental decision-making and management.
  • Support and undertake natural resource conservation projects that develop a better understanding of the use and management of natural resources.
  • Advocate and support policies, legislation and programmes which support sustainable use and management of natural resources.
