[caribwa] Welcome to the Caribwa list
- Hi Everyone, and welcome
Well, thanks to Bruce Potter at the Island Resources Foundation, we now
have a list serve for the Caribbean and Western Atlantic (Caribwa) Marine
The purpose of the Caribwa MEA is to provide the extensive marine and
aquatic education resources and expertise that have been developed through
the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) during the past 25 years
to like-minded educators throughout the Caribbean and Western Atlantic
region. It is to establish a community of educators throughout the region
that can call on each other for support, information and guidance in their
day-to-day activities in expanding the role of environmental education in
their local communities.
To date we have 129 active list members from throughout the region.
* The main purpose of this, your list, is to act as a communications link
for teachers and all those involved in environmental education throughout
the Caribbean and Western Atlantic region.
* If you have questions on marine and aquatic environmental education you
need answered, details of things we might all be interested in --like
websites and conferences -- the list is here for you.
* Maybe you've seen a job-posting somebody might like to hear about, or
heard of funding for marine education on a specific island and you want to
let like-minded people know about it.
* Perhaps you just got your hands on some really great teachers resources
and you'd like others to know about them.
* You are visiting a specific island and would like to make contact with
your local counterparts.
The list can be used for all these things -- and more!
I will be the list manager, so there might be a few glitches until I really
get the hang of it (or at least until my aging brain does!). So, please
bear with me while I try and sort things out if they go wrong!
If you don't want to be on the list, you just send a blank message to:
If you know anyone who who you think would be interested in subscribing,
just have them send a blank message to:
It's your list, so please use it!
In the next couple of days I will be sending out a list of Caribwa projects
that we will be working on over the coming months. I look forward to
hearing your ideas and recieving your input.
regards, Martin Keeley
